Coloring & Cocoa EXPANDS! New Trial Period

You spoke and we listened! Coloring & Cocoa is initiating a trial period to see what times and dates will work best within your busy schedule so that you will be able to experience, relax, and enjoy the program. Throughout the entire month of March, the program will be offered every Monday night at 6:30pm, and every Wednesday and Saturday at 1:00pm.  Come whichever day/s work best for you! All materials will be provided. Remember, this is an adult only program dedicated to helping stressed adults relax and unwind. If you would like to/must bring your child, Monday nights would work best for you as children can enjoy Bedtime Stories, a special Monday night story time beginning at the same time, while you color your stress away!
