Here’s the full release from the program:
Altoona residents, the Zimmermans, participated in The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Towns Program this past summer and were among the winners of the 2018 Photo Contest! All winners were selected from the hundreds of photos submitted by volunteer host families along the East Coast and Southern Canada. The photos capture the fun-filled experiences our volunteer host families shared with Fresh Air children this past summer. Categories include “Backyard Fun,” “Friendship,” “New Experiences,” “Exploring Nature,” “Swimming,” “The Beach” and “Ice Cream.”
The photo was selected as a winner in the “Summer Siblings” category, and features Fresh Air child, April (10), petting a chicken with her host sisters, Grace and Sara, in Altoona, PA.
