November 2018
Kindness is like snow, it beautifies everything it covers. Kahlil Gibran
The cold months are upon us, but that does not mean you need to stay bundled up at home! 

Our youth basketball programs are underway, and our adult drop-in programs (Volleyball and Basketball) are being enjoyed by many.  Our Winter Brochure is complete, and will be coming out in January. We are happy to offer quite a few new programs for people of all ages and abilities! Garage Band, Acting, My Grown up and Me Cooking and more! 
Start the month and get into the holiday spirit at our Annual Tree Lighting, on December 1st! The NHS Band and Santa will be there!
