Girls in Tutus

My Sisters And Me

The purpose of this program is to get a good amount of young girls of different races, sizes and ages together to learn about different family structures and about one another. You DON'T need a sister to attend this program. We're creating a sisterhood within the community!    Together with our Mayor's Summer Youth Employee, Janine, we'll create a puzzle piece mural and make our own tutus.   This program is intended for customers ages 6 to 13. The program will take place in the Children's Room on the Second Floor.
