Wee Care Welcome Event

The Wee Care Center Welcome Event, held August 29, 2016, was a smashing success! Children and their parents enjoyed cotton candy, snow cones, popcorn, face painting, and games. Willy the Wolverine greeted the guests, a magician entertained the crowd, and then prizes were awarded through a random drawing. A good time was had by all!
