  • 16 Heritage Homefront July July Heritage Homefront NeighborhoodNews 17 Come to the carnival Cause! for a Written by Elizabeth McCabe It’s always fun to go to a summer carnival, but it is so much more fulfilling to come to carnival for a cause. This summer on July 13th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, the Goddard School on 754 Reading Road in Mason will be holding their 14th Annual Summer Carnival to benefit the Dragonfly Foundation. This foundation was founded for an all-important purpose: to bring com- fort and joy to kids and young adults being treated for cancer and blood diseases. What a wonderful way to spend a summer night by helping those in need! By participating in the carnival, you will be helping the Dragonfly Foundation create special events and memorable moments for fami- lies, implement the “I Am Still Me” Hair Loss Program, help fulfill children’s hospital “wish lists,” and much more! Your participation truly makes a difference in the lives of others. Plus, the carnival itself will be a blast! Food, games, raffles, a dunking booth, and a “bounce house” all make the night fun for all! Be sure to come out with your family and have a great time!
