UPPER FRUITLAND — Community members in Upper Fruitland enjoyed a day of activities on Aug. 9 during the Doo'Alk'aii Community Field Day at the Walter Collins Center.

Residents played basketball and volleyball games at the Walter Collins Center during the event.

Other activities scheduled for the afternoon included bingo, bean bag toss, potato sack races, tug of war, candy rush and fruit scramble.

Upper Fruitland Chapter President Lynlaria Dickson said the field day provides time to bring together the youth and the elderly as well as provide space for neighbors to communicate and develop positive connections.
