Reeds take lead on treats this week

To ensure some tasty snacks each week, we have started rotating sections responsible for bringing treats.

For our Dec.4 Dance Party this Sunday, we’re calling on reed players to bring a nut-free snack or beverage if they can.

  • 5:15 pm  Step off for blinky-lights parade around the neigborhood before returning to the Center

Don’t forget a costume, or polka dots, or blinky-lights, or whatever puts you in the spirit of the season.
