Planning for our Spring and Summer programs is going on now. Registration begins April 13th. Even though there are uncertainties about what we will be allowed to do May through August, we want to let you know what we have to offer and we need to know what you are interested in.

For only Five Dollars ($5) each, we will hold your space in any single program we offer. If the program proceeds as planned, you will receive a $5.00 credit and need only pay the balance before the program starts. If the program is cancelled or rescheduled your $5 remains as a household credit you or any member of your household can use at a later date.
