Hey mama, need diapers? The Warren County diaper bank has you covered. Pick-up is TOMORROW but it's not too late to register. Visit the site or call Ricki to sign-up. (515) 442-6003 https://www.shortyears.org/diaper-bank
Can someone tell me the type of tomato that was planted in the Children’s garden at Buxton park! Tiny little things.
Is the snowman activity still happening in December?
We have shoeboxes for Indianola children that otherwise may not have things this Christmas and we have backpacks for Indianola families to get essentials (clothes, health, beauty, bathroom things) that many are doing without right now. Just send me your address and if you would like a shoebox, a backpack or both. Then I will drop off on your doorstep. From there, we will pick up on the 19th of December and have pickup spots as well. Thanks so much and God bless. Any questions, please reach out. https://fb.me/e/3VQImNj31
I had such a fun afternoon at Buxton Park today! Thank you so much for hosting!! #BuxtonBouquet
We had a blast picking flowers at Buxton Park today! Look at the beautiful arrangements we made today!! Thank you for doing this!! Our kids can’t wait until next year to do it again!!
I'm interested in the Balance & Band classes. I'm 49 so may I still attend? I have lupus but have been cleared to exercise and could truly benefit from this class. Also wondering if it will continue beyond the month of August? Thank you for your consideration.
I loved having Alice’s Chicomeetrics Class workout recorded and on your page Thank you I used to live in Indianola and went to her class. I knew when I moved the two things I would miss most were Chicometrics class and the walking path. And I was right. I would pay for an online class just so I could do a full class with her!!!! 😃 Please think about it
