SECOND SATURDAY Family Day “Pirates”

Talk like a Pirate Day is just a week away, so get in the spirit with some Pirate fun through artifacts, songs, pirate tales and creative crafts.  Now, while pirates, on the whole, could be pretty bad people, they still represent the spirit of adventure and the desire for discovery in our eyes today.  They are also a lot of fun and we want to share that fun with you and your family.
