A tip o’ the cap to everyone who joined us on March 15 for our St. Patrick’s Day-themed Connells Maple Lee Kids Club event.
Each child who participated had an opportunity to decorate a white carnation by giving it a smiling face. They carnations were dropped in bud vases filled with water that was dyed green to mark the holiday. Eventually, the dye will work its way up the stem to change the color of the flower.
There’s even more fun planned as the kids club has three more events in 2014. The dates and themes:
June 21: Stems Hunger food drive
Aug. 23: Back to school
Nov. 1: Bouquets for Books book drive
