If your child attends one of these schools and you would like help, please contact a school administrator for eligibility.


The first day of Summer, the third week of our free summer lunch program and a very special event today for the kids. In addition to the Brewery Arts Center offering Art in the Park to the kids each Monday,Wednesday and Friday today we enjoyed learning about beautiful miniature ponies, a baby goat and some crazy hair chicks. Zoe Cockerill, Director of The Littlest Things brought out her animals for the kids to enjoy. There were lots of wide eyes and questions as the kids learned about the animals. They enjoyed brushing and petting them and exchanged lots of hugs. We were informed of experiences with cartoon ponies and toy ponies, but never real life ponies.

Thank you Zoe, Pepper and Dominic for a great time today, we appreciate your kindness. ...
