Family Fun Saturday is a regular program on the second Saturday of every month. Every month is a different theme depending on the time of year. These programs usually include a craft activity for kids. In December 2020 we will start providing short lesson and craft videos with supplies so you can do the craft with us. Contact Mina Stafford at (775)687-4810 ext 243 or for more information.
