Summer is here and that means for some of you school is already out or will be soon! You may be looking for fun things to do, to keep your family busy. No worries, we have a lot of fun things planned to help keep them entertained! First we’ll start out with our Celebrating Dads event called ‘My Super Hero’. This is a great event for children to Celebrate the super hero in their lives! Bring Dads, Grandpas, Uncles, Big Brothers, whom ever your child considers their super hero. They’ll be super hero themed games, crafts and more! This event is located at the Adrian Mall on June 3rd. from 10:30 am to 12pm. Click here for the event page.
It wouldn’t be summer without popsicles! So come join us for Popsicles in the Park. We’ll be showing up at parks throughout Lenawee County with our Free Literacy bags and Popsicles of course! This is a great way to meet your Lenawee Great Start Collaborative Parent Liaisons and it’s also a great way to meet new parents! Plus what child doesn’t love the park and popsicles!

School Readiness Story times at the Library! We will have 2 story times this summer. The first one will be on July 13th starting at 11 am and will be located at the Onsted District Library. That story time will feature Pete the Cat. Enjoy a Pete the Cat story with a craft and maybe even a chance to meet Pete the Cat! The second one will be located at the Lenawee Distract Library on July 29th at 10:30 am. Get ready to have fun with Clifford the Big Red Dog!!
You can also find us at a few local events like kids Day at the Lenawee County Fair on July 25th and St. Johns Community Carnival on August 27th from 5pm-8pm. We have games, crafts, and we will also being giving out our literacy bags with goodies when you sign up for our newsletters!
