Book Fair
Dress-up Day and GRAND Event

Tues., March 21 - We are combining our Book Fair Dress-up Day and our Grandparents Social. Grandparents are welcome to dress up in camping attire for the social and can take some great pictures with their grandchildren in front of our campground scene.
Also, at our GRAND Event (Grandparents Social), we will be selling Bookmark Grams for $1.00.  Parents and grandparents can send their favorite Gator a bookmark with a mesage just for them. All proceeds from the sale will go to purchase books to ensure that every Gator gets to take a book home from the Book Fair.
