Kids and parents of the Cool Learning Experience participated in a fundraising event Saturday behind the First Baptist Church of Waukegan on Genessee Street on the east side of the city.
Burgers, hot dogs, nachos, watermelon and lemonade were among the items prepared and sold by the group. A car wash was held for $5 per vehicle.
Cool Learning Experience is a year-round, nature-based, environmental learning program for children in school grades 4-8 and is coordinated by the First Baptist Church of Waukegan.
Its primary focus is to deliver an eight- week summer session that is sustained by a collaboration of partners and sponsoring organizations. Barbara Waller is director of the Cool Learning Experience.
