Dads Drop-in!

October 21, 2013

Friday, October 25th, from 9:30 - 11:30 AM

Join other dads for a casual morning drop-in. Enjoy free play with your child or relax downstairs with coffee and snacks. Parenting support, resources, and other information will be available.

All dads welcome!

Due to a shortfall in our fundraising efforts this year, we have come to the difficult decision to reduce our drop-in hours.

In order to balance our budget, we will be closed Thursday afternoons starting October 10th, 2013 until the end of April 2014. At that time we hope to resume our full schedule.

We appreciate your patience and understanding!
