This month, we continue to offer in-person programming. In order to keep everyone safe, we recommend mask wearing for adults and for children when appropriate. We understand that young children find it difficult to keep a mask on for an extended period. If you have any questions or concern about our programs, please don't hesitate to ask. We wish everyone a safe and fun Halloween!
