Thanks For Joining Us!
Thanks to all who joined us on January 24 for the grand opening of the newly renovated Miller Center, 301 Grove Street. We enjoyed a fun-filled day for all, with lots of kids, hot chocolate, building tours, awesome performances and too many other good things to count. We're glad to be back home at Miller Center after a 2-year renovation process that succeeded beyond our wildest expectations. If you didn't make the opening, please be sure to stop by and check out our new-again building, now fully accessible, with new office, classroom and theater space, a new Community Room and Nature Zone on the lower level, as well as free public wi-fi for visitors.
A few things to note: Miller Center Afterschool program begins Monday, February 2. This FREE program operates M-F, from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm, and is open to children ages 6-13. Program includes homework help, computer and game time, outdoor fun, crafts, and a healthy snack. Call (434) 455-5858 for more information. Registration is required.
The Nature Zone has new hours; they are open Friday and Saturday from noon - 4:00 pm, and admission is FREE! Be sure to stop by and check out the touch table, animal feedings, and more.
