This DIY we are going to make an adorable decoration that you can use for the rest of winter! We are making a snowman out of wood slices. A cute smiling face for a table, window display, or wherever in your home! Registration is not required, but is suggested. Supplies are limited and we will honor those who register first. This event is for adults and teens (grades 6-12).
Don’t let Monday Mornings drag you down, stop by the library for a fun Monday Mixer!
We are starting to provide a weekly early childhood play group, with a different theme/objective each week. A chance for young children (birth-age 5) to play, learn, and grow together. An opportunity for parents and caregivers to meet each other and learn new ways to encourage and interact with their children. All caregivers welcome!
We are looking forward to continuing our cooking classes in the new year! We have lots of exciting news to share.
First, we want to send a GIANT THANK YOU to Derby Walmart’s Neighborhood Market #3155! They donated money to help support food and other tool costs for our classes. If you stop in the store be sure to let them know how much we appreciate their generosity and supporting our community!
We have our spring classes lined up and you are welcome to start signing up for them on January 8th at 5:30 pm.
Our classes include a Pressure Pot Cooking Class with the Sedgwick County Extension Center, a 20 Minutes Skillet Dinner Class with Beautiful Day Cafe, and Peruvian Cuisine with Gabby’s Peruvian Restaurant.
We are changing how we sign up for classes, you will be able to sign up for one active cooking spot for one of these classes, and then you can sign up for our watch list on the other two classes if you like. When you are on the watch list you can watch the class, meet the chef, and get the recipe. It will also serve as a waiting list, and you will get a call if you get bumped up. This is so we can let more people have the opportunity to do the hands on cooking experience! Thanks again to our awesome chefs that are donating their time to teach us how to cook amazing meals, and to Cargill and Dillons for being our sponsors for these classes!
