Color Me Relaxed

How does this sound:  A hour of relaxing music, friends to chat with or just sit with in silence, a colored pencil in your hand as you create a beautiful picture...

Does that sound relaxing to you?  If so, join us tomorrow, Tuesday May 23 at 2 PM for our adult coloring hour, Color Me Relaxed!  We will play classical music, have a snack, chat (or not) and just spend the hour coloring pictures.  We will have coloring pages and colored pencils available or you can bring your own.  

We are looking forward to spending time relaxing with you!
