Newtown Arbor Day!

Area preschoolers and their grown ups are always welcome to attend the annual Arbor Day events at Officer Brian Gregg Memorial Park! This year’s celebration is on Friday, April 22, 2016. Festivities begin around 10 am and go on for about 2 hours. All are welcome to join in to age appropriate stations! This is self paced. There will be music, parachute play, sidewalk chalk and many of our first and fifth grade friends from Goodnoe Elementary School as well as our buddies from Newtown Presbyterian Preschool will be there too!
