There was a good crowd for what many are hoping was the first Day of Play, held Thursday afternoon at the Trigg County Recreation Complex.

Allison Beshear, health coordinator for the Pennyrile District Health Department, says the free event, held from 4 – 6:30 p.m., is designed to help give families some ideas on how they can be active together.

Ramona Hamilton of the Trigg County Humane Society said there were more than 200 people who came out. Beshear said there were 124 children and youths that registered, ranging from four months old to 19 years old.

“Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves,” said Hamilton. “Everyone had a great time. I deem it a success. (I) can’t wait till next year.”

There were a number of sponsors from the community, including churches, businesses and government agencies.

One of those agenciees was the Trigg County Sheriff’s Office, who brought out Kilo, their new drug dog.
