There was a nice turn out with 32 children and 10 adults attending the fun program. Floyd (the stuffed dog) was passed around the room and the children interacted with him during the story time. The story for the day was " Pete the Cat: Out of This World" written by James Dean.  Creative coloring sheets was the craft activity of the day and glitter stars and planets could be used to add to their creative works. Treat bags were handed out to the children at the end of the program.
