Elink – December 29, 2015

In the League 

Team Kids on the Block would like to invite all Junior League of Raleigh members, their families and friends to attend a dress rehearsal puppet performance at the Julia Jones Daniels Center for Community Leadership (711 Hillsborough Street) from 4 p.m. – 4:45 p.m. on Sunday, January 3rd. This is a great opportunity to come see the team in action and show your support.  An essential part of the program is the Q&A session at the end of certain skits, so your children’s participation in this dialogue will be helpful as the team enters their 2016 performance season. The performance will begin promptly at 4 p.m., please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to start time. This event is best suited for elementary school children and will explore important topics such as disabilities, bullying and healthy eating. We hope to see you there!
