Park Days

We will be having Park Days for the kids on Tuesday mornings from 10:30 to 12:00, while the weather is nice.  Typically November – March.
Located at Lyons & SW 3rd.  It's a small park that is fenced all the way around.

Contact Sister Powell-Joyner or Sister Candice Smith if you have any questions. You can find them on the membership directory.

Obviously, if it is raining, or has been raining all morning, we will not be meeting, as the equipment will be wet.

We usually have a couple families come.  If by chance you go and no one else is there, pat yourself on the back, because you're having a park day with your kids.  :)  Then, next time, talk to a few moms and encourage them to come too.

Relief Society Activity- Thurs. Feb 10, 7 p.m.
