RECREATE ART CLASSES CONTINUE EVERY FRIDAY

Calling all ReCreate fans! Every Friday at 3:30 pm we host a special ReCreate art class in the SCM Art Studio. Participants make a cool craft project each week that corresponds to a monthly theme. This Friday, June 28th, we will be making castanets, a percussion instrument, out of recycled materials. Classes are free with admission, so stop on by and have a blast with us!

 

 

$4 FRIDAY WAS FULL OF FUN!

We had a great time last Friday at our first $4 Friday event! A big shout out to New Bite Catering, Sun Pizza, Gale’s Food Flyer, and Big Spoon Yogurt for providing yummy food at the event. Also, a big thanks to The Hoots for playing some great dancing and party tunes. As always, we would like to recognize Whimsy Face Painting and Body Art for providing beautiful face painting designs. We loved seeing everyone enjoying themselves and hope to have an even bigger turn out next month. Join us on Friday, July 19th for our next $4 Friday event, and don’t forget to invite your friends!

 

LITERACY MONTH IS ALMOST OVER – DON’T MISS OUT
