LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. – Hundreds of local families and children attended a back to school fair hosted by the Foglia YMCA and supported by state Rep. Mary Edly-Allen, D-Libertyville.

“As a teacher, the beginning of the school year was always an exciting time. The end of summer is the time to celebrate the start of a new school year. I was thrilled to be asked to partner with the Foglia YMCA to offer a fun filled day to local families,” said Edly-Allen.

Edly-Allen and the Foglia YMCA provided activities for children, including a Touch-a-Truck event, child fingerprinting and child identification kits, at August’s back to school fair.
