Highlights from our November Program!



In November, our speaker at both Villa 500 and Jackson Elementary was Debbie McIntosh, who spoke to our students in costume as famed children's author, Beatrix Potter, about her books, including The Tale of Peter Rabbit.  The kids saw authentic exhibits from the author's life and asked many questions of our famous author.  Our volunteers also led the kids in a rousing game of Four Corners.  Special thanks to all of our volunteers, both leaders and readers!  The kids had a great time!  Our next program will be December 3rd.  Please click the 'Get Involved' tab if you would like to volunteer.
