"I Love My Auntie" clipartWe celebrated “Auntie’s Day” with stories and a craft at our Funday Sunday on July 27 at 2 p.m.

This 6th annual event is a day to thank, honor, and celebrate aunts in a child’s life, whether an Auntie by relation, Auntie by Choice or godmother, for everything she does for a child not-her-own. 

Here are seven auntie stories to share.

Curl up, get cozy, and read!
