Holiday Art

Have you seen the recent additions to our public bulletin board?  Next time you stroll through the lobby, take a moment and appreciate the colorfully decorated reindeer, snowman, and gingerbread houses of our artistic young patrons.  We will continue to put up any holiday or winter themed works brought to us throughout the remainder of the year.  Coloring pages are still available and although space is limited, we will display all submissions.  Happy Holidays!
