Temperatures will be dropping to freezing next week, which is why the Youth Department is reminding families to send coats, hats and gloves with their children, especially as youth can so frequently ignore cold temperatures while playing and we need to protect those hearts, heads and hands. We also want to remind families that there may be After School Program closures due to inclement weather, but we will be sure to call our families if there is a program closure. For more information, call the Youth Department at (360) 966-9696. ...
