Kids build their best sandcastle at Sunset Beach


The Family Matters Club hosted its annual Sandcastle Building and Pirate Treasure Dig on July 10 at Sunset Beach. Kids of all ages were invited to dig for pirate treasures in the sand and pick something from the treasure chest of goodies. After the dig, kids built their best sandcastle for an entry into a prize drawing.
