Kissimmee Youth Academy celebrated National Ice Cream Day with ice cream sundaes! The youth were given the options of vanilla or vanilla/chocolate swirl and several toppings including: caramel, chocolate, or strawberry syrup, whipped cream, and sprinkles. The youth had a great time making and eating their sundaes!

The youth participated in a “Tie Tying” group that was organized by our very own Mr. Harris. The youth were taught the art of tie tying, and to always wear one when you need to look your best. Special thanks to all of the youth for their participation and attentiveness, and to Mr. Harris for putting this awesome group together!
