Do you remember the Beatles hit song "All You Need Is Love"? How about Pat Boone singing "Love Letters In The Sand"? During the month of February LOVE is in the air at the Johnson Center. In honor of Valentine's Day, Cliff Spratt will be singing love songs on February 9th. Happy Valentine's Day to everyone. Red roses, boxes of chocolates and other special gifts make us all think of this special day. Be sure to watch out for Cupid's arrow!!
February is an event filled month around the world as well as at the Johnson Center. A professional storyteller, a quilt display and yoga are just a few of the special activities planned for the month. We have started a pen pal program with some of the 5th grade students from Littleton Prep. It has been so much fun reading about them and their families. We hope they have enjoyed learning about us as well. We are excited to meet them when they come with their teacher on February 5th. Our cooking class with Jonna has been so busy making homemade rolls and other delicious treats. They always manage to make some extras for the staff!
For all the football fans out there be sure to watch the Super Bowl XLIV on Sunday,February 7th. We look forward to post game discussions among the participants. Of course, the commercials are always a topic of conversation. The Winter Olympics begin on February 12th in Vancouver. It will be 2 weeks of skiing, skating and other winter sports. The Chinese New Year, the year of the Tiger, will begin on February 14th. So many of our activites for the month will be centered on these events.
The Center will be open for President's Day on Monday, February 15th. Presidential Trivia will be the highlight for that day. It is also Library Lover's month, so make a special trip to your local library and check out a few good books.
