Getting Ready for the Party

 Our Winter Open House is fast approaching, and we couldn't be more excited.  We hope that you can join us this Saturday, Feb 1 from 10am-5pm for demos, games, prizes, and more.  For more information, check out our website.

One of the demos we will be doing from 10:30am-12:30pm features the brand new Gift Bag Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers.  In this picture, you can see the boards (which are compact and portable) as well as two sizes of bags you can make.  Be sure to stop by and see how to use this versatile tool!

During our Open Houses, we also coordinate with a local charity.  This time our community outreach is with Bright Spaces in Vienna.  Here is a bit more information about this group:

Bright Spaces are cheerful play areas created in homeless shelters or other community agencies serving children, youth, and families in crisis. Along with being an inviting, safe, fun, educational environment for play, the Bright Space is also a portal to support the agency's services to the children and their families in their care.
