Lowe's Build and Grow Workshop

We just attended our first Lowe's Build and Grow free kids workshop. I have to say I was VERY impressed. It was a lot of fun, it's free, and the kids had a blast. It was a great way to mix things up here in McAlester. We always enjoy taking the kids to the park so it was nice to get a change. You can visit their website here to register for the next clinic and get more information on age restrictions et cetera. The next one is Saturday September 13, at 10:00 a.m.
