The program will begin at 4 p.m. with a snack, then they will spend the next hour and a half playing games, learning songs and hearing stories. There will be prizes, and children will learn to play boomwhackers.

Pre-registration/permission slips are required.

The leaders are trained and excited to meet the children from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.
