Did you know that the idea for Kids in Motion began at the Mark Twain Dinette? In 1996, there was reported gang activity in Hannibal and local law enforcement called a community meeting at the Dinette to discuss the problem. Afterwards, discussion followed on the sidewalk of the restaurant about ways to combat the issue and provide a positive alternative….and from there, the idea for Kids in Motion was launched. Since this initial discussion, Kids in Motion has provided countless Hannibal, Bowling Green and Louisiana kids and teens a positive experience that greatly impacts their lives through service to others.
Stop in at the Mark Twain Dinette on April 23 from 5 to 9 p.m. and 15-20 percent of your meal purchase will go to the Hannibal Kids in Motion and Teens in Motion Program.
Curious about what Kids in Motion does or how you can get involved? Throughout the night, participants and volunteers of Kids in Motion will be available to answer any questions about what Kids in Motion is and how it impacts our community. Kids in Motion is under the umbrella of Douglass Community Services and is a United Way agency.
