Discovering Me Begins January 26th!

This is much more than a playgroup or parenting class. It is an opportunity to better understand your child and your role as a parent.

This class is open to anyone who is expecting and/or cares for a young child up to age 3.

Check out school's website for the brochure for further information to register.

This is open to the local community....Feel free to share with friends and family!

Holiday Billing Schedule

For those of you receiving a monthly invoice from us, you may have noticed that your December invoice was emailed slightly earlier than normal. This was due to the long Thanksgiving weekend.

Please note that your January invoice will also be sent out earlier this month in preparation for the winter break. You should receive your monthly invoice by December 11th. This invoice will still have the normal due date of January 1. Because of the early invoicing date, that invoice will not have additional charges included such as school lunches. These charges will be added to the invoice you will receive in January when we will resume our regular billing schedule.

NEEDED: Upcycled Bud Vases

Need to clean out your cupboards? We are looking to collect an eclectic collection of glass bud vases. We would like to collect varying sizes and heights (but no taller than a wine bottle.) Please drop off all bud vases you would like to donate to the Victorian House before winter break.

Area Event: What’s Been Walking Here?

Saturday, December 6, from 10:00am to 11:30am

Meet at the Eagle Marsh barn. Join Dane Nagy, Indiana Master Naturalist and expert tracker, to learn how to recognize signs and tracks of animals that walk the marsh in the winter. We’ll start in the barn making tracks of our own and learning common animal tracks, then hike the preserve to identify animals that have been walking in the mud or snow. Fun for all ages. Dress for the trails and weather. http://www.lrwp.org/events
