Fun Functions

Big Friend-Little Friend, Inc. does not have a place where everyone can get together and hang out, so we have events each month called “Fun Functions”. We try to do things that aren’t everyday activities, such as ice skating, kayaking/canoeing, learning archery and gun safety, and things like that. Read on for a complete list of past Fun Functions. We also post our upcoming Fun Functions on this page.

Another aspect we work into our Fun Functions is Character Counts! lessons. There are six pillars of character: Caring, Citizenship, Fairness, Responsibility, Respect and Trust. We tie in the relevant pillar of character with the activity we are doing. For example, in May we participated in the Young Eagles program and each of our Little Friends had the opportunity to fly around Yankton with local pilots. They learned about Respect, Responsibility and Trust while flying. You have to respect the airplane and dangers of flying, know your responsibilities throughout the entire process of flying, and you have to trust your co-pilot while in the air.


Upcoming Fun Functions

Flying with the Young Eagles Program  |  May 23rd at 5:00 PM  |  Location: Hoffner Hangar at the Chan Gurney Municipal Airport, 700 E 31st St. Yankton, SD 57078
