The Ponoka Youth Centre held a free family fun night Sept. 9, complete with bouncy castles, face painting and glitter tattoos, balloon animals by Rosco the Clown, and a dance and D.J.

The event doubled as a farewell party for long-time staff member Jesse Vaudry. Vaudry, who has been with the centre for 16 years, is now moving on to a new opportunity.
