Thanksgiving Dinner & Dedication of Operation Christmas Child Boxes 
Each year, Learn & Play participates in Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child program!  This year our generous families returned 60 boxes filled with gifts for children around the world!  We blessed the boxes during our Thanksgiving service followed by a family dinner!  This year we had Thankful Pumpkins on each table for participants to write the things they are thankful for.  Each class had worked on a Thankful Pumpkin in the weeks leading up to our dinner!

Summer Camp
Messy, intriguing & educational fun!  We had visits from A Place Called Hope, MadScience, Mystic, The Science Center, Turn it Up and more! 
A Night In Bethlehem
Participants became citizens of Bethlehem.  They sampled period specific foods (and some current fare as well), rode on a donkey, visited Mary, Joseph & the Baby Jesus in the stable and “stomped grapes”.   
An amazing night of learning through experience and sharing conversation with other families. 
In 2017 we upgraded our playground area!  We had a great time raising funds with our Playground Extravaganza dinner & silent auction, teachers participated in “Dessert Wars” and we sold cupcakes and candy for Easter!  With a generous grant from the Longbrake Fund we were able to finally purchase the equipment.  We had pieces but what to do with them?  Munger Construction came to the rescue!  Management and employees graciously donated their time and talents to install the pieces which turned out to be quite the job!  Many thanks to our staff, families, friends and local businesses for supporting this undertaking!
