Fruth Family Fun Day

The Second Annual Fruth Family Fun Day was held on Sunday, June 26th, at the Valley Wave Pool in Hurricane. Fruth Family Fun Day got its start as a way to bring together Fruth employees, friends, children, and even grandchildren to celebrate and enjoy some summer fun. There was unseasonably cold weather, and storms threatened to put a damper on the festivities, but there were still over 350 people who came out to have a good time with us. Local Fruth stores closed early to give their employees and families a chance to go have some fun.


This year’s Fun Day featured some new additions: rock climbing walls, inflatable bounce houses and other fun toys like the inflatable obstacle course and some giant slides. These new attractions were sponsored by our corporate partners Cardinal Health, Abbott, ScriptPro, and Emdeon and were a big hit with kids and adults alike! The event began at 3pm with two hours of fun on the inflatables and the annual Cornhole Tournament. The Cornhole Tournament was won by Robbie Greenlee and Eric Blake; Second place was captured by Diane Knapp, POS Administrator, and her daughter Regina Bing . The first place winners received  gift cards and the second place prize winners were awarded prizes.

Starting at 5pm, there was a cookout catered by Patty Holley, manager of Fruth store #8 in Proctorville, Ohio.  Patty served lots of delicious hot dogs, beef barbeques and  all the fixins’ with ice cream treats after dinner.  After the cookout, the huge door prize giveaway got underway.  There were over 300 door prizes, and each child present won a door prize.  Each person who registered for the Fruth Family Fun Day received a gift bag full of products from our sponsors. And finally, at 7pm, many people braved the unseasonably cold weather for two-hours-worth of a private pool party complete with slides, tube rides, and lots of waves from the famous Hurricane Wave Pool.

The Second Annual Fruth Family Fun Day was another runaway hit. Everyone had a wonderful time, and everyone at Fruth Pharmacy is eagerly awaiting next year’s fun. We can’t wait to see you all there next year!
