LaBelle Kiwanis Kid's Day Postponed Until January 23rd.

The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle believes that the health and well being of our children is very important. Although the Governor has declared that Florida move into Phase-3 or our recovery from the COVID-19 Pandemic, the club members made a decision to postpone Kiwanis Kid's Day until January 23rd.
The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle will extend an invitation to the community at the end of December and will send out a flyer for the event prior to January 23rd.
The Kiwanis Club of LaBelle is looking forward to a fun-filled day for children and their families.
The Kiwanis Kid's Day event will be at the Barron Park in LaBelle on Saturday, January 23rd from 10am to 2pm. We hope to see you then!

LaBelle Kiwanis welcomed guest speaker Martha Cruz, HCS Occupational Therapist

She explained the sensory processing disorder (SPD), and treating this disorder by exposing a child to Sensory Stimulation through repetitive activities for Pre-K to 8th grade. Organized movement may include carefully designed physical activities. Occupational Therapy helps retrain the senses in a controlled, stimulating environment focusing on making SPD easier to manage in day-to-day life. Through repetition a child's nervous system will respond in a more organized way and react to sensations more efficiently i.e refocus.
