Children’s Mental Health Awareness Event

May 23 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


We have a fun filled time for the whole family! At this location we will be live offering a workshop
“Managing Stress” from 12:30-2 p.m. (see description below) There will be fun activities outside for the whole family so join us in creating your own items
to take home: sugar/salt scrubs, essential oil roller balls, activities such as packing peanuts sculptures and ball toss, and more. We will be observing CDC
COVID protocols and providing COVID safe snacks. After what we all have been through in the last year your family deserves some relaxing fun and selfcare
time. The activities outside will be weather permitting. Please bring your own masks to wear and there is plenty room on our grassed in area so feel
free to bring lawn chairs or blankets so you can relax and enjoy family time outside while socially distancing.
