Kids and Family Summer Programs

We’re getting ready for an exciting summer this year with lots of programs for all ages!  There’s a little bit of everything, and we hope to provide an exciting summer for local families!

Art Classes

We will be restarting our children’s art classes with two classes every Friday through August (Fall schedule to be announced later).  The Little Artists Class for ages 3-6 will be at 11 am, and the Art Explorers Class for ages 7+ will be at 2 pm.  Admission for either class is $5/child. 

Last year, Mrs. Vesta Weaver and her daughter Sue Ann established the Manford Weaver Educational Fund in memory of their husband and father. The fund pays for most materials and will provide financial assistance for families who could not otherwise afford to participate in the classes.  Without their gift, community art classes such as this one would not be possible. 

Reading Contest

Our reading contest is also back for 2022!  There will be three categories divided by age, and participation will be measured by hours spent reading.  Prizes will be given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each category, and winners will receive a book and small prize. Download your reading log here!
