Monarch Butterfly Program Highlights

On Saturday we held our Monarch Butterfly Program. Charlie Hoffman has been teaching residents how to identify, collect and care for Monarch eggs and caterpillars for over a decade. We were so happy to have him back again. This year is a hard year for Monarchs so if you find them, help them grow or drop them off to be cared for in the children's room. Please see Lorraine if you found some you'd like us to care for.

Fairy House Building a Huge Success - Many Thanks to the Sheckells Family

On Saturday children had the chance to come and build a fairy house, create a crown and other crafts as well as skip through a fairy procession complete with bubbles and fairy dust. 
This fantastic idea was brought to us by Tinamarie Sheckells and would not have been possible without her careful planning, enthusiasm and help throughout the event 
(as well as her husband Bryan, and able assistance from the Glass family & Marissa). 
Thank you to all the Sheckells family for all your hard work and help here in the Children's Room!

Two Charlies Kick Off Summer Performances

On July 1 Charlie Williams, the Noise Guy kicked off our summer performances with sounds and humor. The children and adults were laughing non-stop at his jokes and sounds as he imitated cars, rain and nails on a chalkboard!

This week, Charlie Hope was the first to perform on our Wow! It's Wednesday! line-up. Performing familiar and new songs, children loved getting up to dance along.

Check out these pictures from the nights and be sure to check out our Wow! It's Wednesday! page so you don't miss any more great events.
