It feels like spring has arrived early this year so this is the perfect time to turn your sights to the many fun springtime programs we are offering. For those with young children, be sure to attend our annual Egg Hunt, one of the largest in the area. If you have school age children, don’t forget that spring break is right around the corner. Keep your child happy while school is out in April and sign up for the Spring Break Travel Club camp. Local teens gearing up for formals, such as Prom, should not miss out on Diva Central, our annual event that allows middle and high school students to select a dress and accessories for their special event – at no cost. With so much going on, be sure to take time for yourself – our wellness programs like Mindfulness Foundations will help. Or, if you find your ‘zen’ through social activities then be sure to visit the Maker Faire or participate in our St. Patrick’s Day Social. There is something for everyone at RCC – we look forward to seeing you soon! Link
