The third annual Ark City Girl Fun Day is right around the corner.

This event, sponsored by Soroptimists of Arkansas City and Power of the Purse, is put on for elementary school-aged girls.

Some of the things to be emphasized during the event are activities in which the girls will learn good character and work ethic, healthy and fun relaxation techniques, and movement and team building. The girls also will have an opportunity to make new friends, learn new skills, and enjoy treats, an inspirational craft pillow and a custom-made T-shirt.

The event will take place from 9 a.m. to noon April 8 at the Arkansas City Recreation Center, located at 225 E. Fifth Ave.

Sign-ups for adult participants can be submitted through Jill Hunter at Farm Bureau Financial Services, located at 526 N. Summit St.
