Register to join us for the Traveling World of Reptiles show, which will be held on Sat., Jun. 7 at Spencer Crossing School Gymnasium from 10:30 am - 12 pm. There is still lots of space available in this program, so if you've got a kid who loves reptiles, make sure you don't miss out on this awesome event!

Laura Doherty

And on Sat., Jun. 14, we will be hosting an outdoor concert featuring Laura Doherty from 11 am - 12 pm! Get ready to acoustically rock your socks off with Laura's fun, folky-pop tunes! This upbeat concert will get your kids dancing and singing along! This program is for ages 1-8, and spaces are still available, so register today to join the fun!
