Some 190 youngsters took part in Delta Area Economic Opportunity Corp.'s Back-To-School Fair Thursday. The event offered 14 stations where those attending could learn more about nutrition and safety as well as receive free eye exams and sports physicals. Kaden Sadler has his finger prints taken by Sgt. Patricia Garner with the Scott County Sheriff's Department as part of a child identification kit. At the end of their trip through the fair, students received backpacks filled with school supplies. Classes start next Wednesday for students in the Sikeston R-6 School District.
