DIY Hummingbird Feeder Fun!


Great fun!

WOW! What a great time we had today at our first ever hummingbird feeder workshop! Everyone left with a smile and their own feeder; armed with new knowledge of hummingbird migration and behavior, ready to enjoy countless entertaining hours watching the hummingbirds at the feeders plus the added benefit of reduced insect population.

Thanks to all that came out and made this such a great success! Enjoy!

Book Club & Craft + Movie Night = FUN Family Night!

What fun was had! This past Thursday was our Family Night! This month we kicked off story and craft time before the movie! The story and craft each month will be as close to the movie theme as possible…this month it was Pirates!!!!!


This month's movie feature was The Pirate Fairy.

Movie Night is on the third Thursday of each month.
Story and craft time starts at 6:00
