Thanks to bigger crowds, more activities and greater community support, organizers declared the event a resounding success. The event, which was sponsored by Powell Chapel United Methodist Church’s youth organization, People Helping Youth Reach Excellence (P.H.Y.R.E.) and the Chambers County School District, gave out free school supplies to nearly 900 pre-k through twelfth grade children according to organizer Adrian Holloway, which was nearly triple the number from last year. Each registered child received an age specific backpack that included items such as paper, pens, markers, crayons and notebooks. In addition, the event included live entertainment, guest speakers, college recruiters, kids games and food. Holloway said that this year’s Bash far exceeded the success of last year, and her group plans to make the Bash an annual event in LaFayette. “I would like to say thanks to all the members of P.H.Y.R.E. and Chambers County School District for their hard work and dedication and thanks to everyone else that supported the event in whatever capacity that may have been,” Holloway added.
