This is a Halloween celebration for siblings to attend together. We'll read stories, make crafts and play games. It's sure to be a ghostly good time!

Kara Guizzetti-Reif
Early Childhood, Preschool and Day Camp Supervisor

Why I chose this program: 
I think it's a great program because so many kiddos have been able to enjoy classes with Ms. Joelle when they're little, but once they head off to elementary school, they're too old for our daytime programming. In this class, siblings ages 3-8 can come back to visit and play together!

As the sun sets on a cool autumn day, enjoy an exclusive opportunity to walk through one of St. Charles' oldest cemeteries after dark. At each gravesite, guests will "encounter" a community figure and listen as they tell in short monologues about their lives, their joys, their sorrows and their loves. . In cooperation with the St. Charles History Museum.
