I am so disappointed that you are not requiring facemasks. We were really hoping we could take our 2 yo only child somewhere covid safe. She wears a mask, but that's not sufficient.
where is the 10 a.m. event/video? We cannot find it.
FamilySong Music Class is thrilled to offer classes at WOW! Check out our free FamilySong Class on Friday, Sept 8 at 10:30 and our 7 week session starting Sept 15.
