FYI- Crafts or snacks may change due to availability or budget. FYI for 2023- If club is full, I call in order according to the wait list. At end of day, the Friday before club the list is set & no more wait list calls will be made. There are no drop-ins due the fact that the list closed the day before. We have not had success calling the morning of, so that has been suspended. Thank you for your interest & if the club gets as many as 6 on the wait list we will consider adding a second session:)
