Do you remember the magic of “Show and Tell” from grade school?  Remember the enjoyment you got showing your class some prized possession and telling them all about what made it special? Here’s your chance to do it again! Bring an item (or two) near and dear to your heart and tell us the story behind it. Maybe it’s something from a childhood memory. Maybe it’s an uncommon or antiquated item that many people won’t even recognize today. You decide! We will also play a few games to spark your memory of events from the past. Light refreshments will be served. A minimum of six registered participants is required for this program to be held. Absolutely no weapons or adult material of any kind will be allowed at this program.
