Adults

Gift Wrapping Party:
Thursday, December 14th at 6:30 p.m.

Bring your gifts and wrap while listening to holiday music! This is a special adults-only event where we will provide you with a space to wrap gifts without little eyes watching you wrap. Some supplies will be provided but we encourage you to bring your own gift wrapping paper.
