Whittier Weekly – 11/8/20

We hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather! Please see below for several activities, with fast approaching deadlines!

WRECK Dancing Lights! – Sign up now

(sign up will close on November 16th)

Audience: All Whittier Families

Kids (and parents) will participate in two Zoom sessions where they will build their own computer controlled LED light string. These can be programmed to music and become their own personal Christmas light display, or anything else their creative minds come up with.

The cost is $30 per kit, so order as many as you need for your family.

There will be a Monday night and a Sunday afternoon session available. See the link below for exact details.

Contact Matt Butts(mattbutts@gmail.com) with any questions.
