A big THANK YOU to the Sumski-Weber, Stern, Odell, Smith, Goodrich, and Snyder families for hosting the most recent adults-only POPs. Together we learned how to make sourdough and focaccia at LilliPies, rocked out with a jam band night, and came in both first and second place against Johnson Park parents in trivia. Don't miss out on any of the remaining adults-only parties by signing up below.
