Family Fun Events Weekend of March 2, 2012

We are back!! Last fall I had to upgrade my laptop and my new virus software did not like sending the same email to a large group of people so I was forced to discontinue my Weekly Family Fun email. But I think I have a solution. I am going to upload this information to my blog every Friday and if you are a subscriber to my blog  you will receive an email telling you there is a new posting. Feedback is welcome. You can email me at Thanks Missy
