Bumper ball fun in Massena

Markees Robinson, 7, Massena, sticks out his head from his bumper ball to greet a friend at the Possibilities in the Park Saturday, at Spring Park, Massena. Sponsored by the Seaway Valley Prevention Council and several healthcare organizations, the event also included Narcan training, face painting, bouncy houses, and scavenger hunts. The Youth Advocacy Program, active in several area high schools, assisted children with the bumper balls.  North Country Now photo by Cheryl Shumway.
