April is here and the seasons are changing.  It seems like winter doesn’t want to leave, but before we know it, the weather will be warmer, and the days longer.  I can’t wait for summer to come around, my favorite time of year.

Many of you may be looking for summer camps and fun activities for your little ones.  I have listed a few church sponsored summer camps at the bottom of this list.  If your church is sponsoring a summer camp this year, please send me the information to  If you are looking for some fun things to do within the next two weeks, there is plenty to do in our area.  Check out the list below and make sure you save the dates and support the events.
