Fun for thought: Parmalee tradition moves indoors

Coen Kenny’s eyes lit up as his paper airplane launched high into the air and shot across the gym at Parmalee Elementary School.

“Wow. I like this one best,” he said with a grin, gesturing to the wooden launcher that shot paper airplanes sequentially.

Kenny was just one of hundreds of Parmalee students who attended the school’s annual Fall Family Fun Night on Oct. 19. Though the event is generally held outside and includes relay races and obstacle courses, it was moved indoors this year to accommodate cooler weather.
