Spring has Sprung!
April is here, and with it comes warmer temperatures and a greener world!
Around here, spring means fun programs and outdoor adventures!

So join us on Saturday, April 26th from 1pm-4pm for a new program "Flights of Fancy"! Make a frustration-less flyer kite, a paper airplane or a bird craft! Enjoy flight with us here at Helmer!
The cost is $10 per person, or $8 for members. This includes all craft materials including a kite that you can take home!

April also means Earth Day!!

Come give back to Mother Nature
Come on over after school on Tuesday, April 22nd from 3:30-5pm. We will be working outside, woodchipping trails and giving back to Mother Earth!
