Putting an End to Bullying with 1st Annual Carnival

1Michael-Reading

On Saturday, October 4, the “I Will Be the 1” organization will be hosting a community
carnival at Riverside Park from noon – 5 p.m. There will be games & prizes, crafts, food, performances, Stilt walker, face-painting, fun photo booth, and more! The carnival portion of the event will take place from noon until 5 p.m.. The event will conclude with an evening concert from 6:00-10:00 p.m. featuring Findlay's own Lucid Spark & The Athen Ry. Michael Bulkowski of Trans Am Meatballs and Subs will be selling his delicacies. “I Will Be the 1” is an organization that strives to end youth suicide caused by bullying. This is a heavy topic, but a critical one that we must address as a community. In order to end bullying and the pain it causes, we need to start at the root cause, by changing the bully’s desire to act out and by providing resources to those who are bullied. This is the only way we can end suicide and other pain caused by bullying.
