Everybody is invited to game night! Have a game you have been wanting to share? Feel free to bring it or use one already provided. Fun refreshments provided. Games will be raffled off to lucky winners!

History of Christmas

Let's get into the spirit of the holiday season. Jump back into the Christmas past with Bob Cottrell as he tells us about the first Christmas of 1539, where Hernando de Soto, a dozen Catholic priests, and around 600 Spanish explorers celebrated. Bob will then travel through time to the Christmas present day of how Conway celebrates this holiday.

History of Thanksgiving

Jump back into the past, to the first Thanksgiving of 1565 in St. Augustine in Spanish La Florida, and travel through time to the present day of this special Holiday. Bob Cottrell will go into details of how we get food from the farm onto the table. This is a holiday in which we can enjoy a couple of days off work and focus on food, parade, friends, and family. It has a much less commercial nature to it than many other holidays.

Halloween/Dress Up Costume Swap

Costumes are great for themed events or to enhance imagination and play all year long. Bring your outgrown or no longer used costumes and choose others to keep! Costumes will only be accepted if they are clean and in good condition, and may be brought in any day leading up to the event. Available following story time and throughout the day until 4 PM.  Please see Tessa or Kate in the children's room for more information.
