GATESVILLE – It promises to be a day that not only attracts families, but brings the entire Gates County community together.

The 6th annual Family Fun & Fitness Day will be held from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22 at the Gates County Community Center. Admission is free and so is the fun!

The Punt, Pass and Kick Competition is sanctioned by the National Football League. Locally, it will be under the direction of Nathan Brown, a physical education teacher for the Gates County Public School System. The competition is open to boys and girls between the ages of 6 -15.

Returning to the line-up this year will be the GP4H Grill-Off; health education booths and speakers; free bouncy houses for youth and other youth attractions; and craft and food vendors.
