Handmade Valentine Card Workshop
February 8, 1–2:30 pm
Create one-of-a-kind valentines for someone special!  Sign up the whole family for this fun workshop led by GRACE staff to make some fun, creative ornaments.  (Please note: Parents will need to assist children with the creation of ornaments, and children must be accompanied by a participating adult. Adults may come on their own and do not need to be accompanied by a child, it will be fun for everyone!) Sponsored by Reston Community Center. Registration coming soon.
