Random Acts of Kindness Day!

Who wouldn't love to find a kind message in the middle of their busy day? Join us in our endeavor to spread kindness today with our positive messages.
Since it *is* Random Acts of Kindness Day, we invite you to join us for a special story time focused on the message of kindness. We will then write uplifting and encouraging notes on rocks and leave them outside, in nature, for random people to find as they walk down the street!
Bundle up if it's cold, and we look forward to seeing your kind faces!

Let's Go Fly a Kite!

Mon. March 21st @ 11:00-12:00

What's the best thing to do on a breezy spring day?  Why, fly a kite, of course!  But, first, we will need to make one.  Hmmm... we can do that!
