Cedaredge United Methodist Church will launch a monthly program for children of Cedaredge and surrounding communities with a back-to-school/end of summer celebration from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11. Based on Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, which says there is a season for every purpose under heaven, children from kindergarten to fifth grade will enjoy music, drama, arts and crafts, outdoor games, including water games, snacks, lunch and a trip to pick seasonal produce at one of the area's farms. The children will also pack school supplies for children in need.
While pre-registration would be appreciated, it is not required. Registration for the Aug. 11 event will begin at 8:45 a.m. with the program beginning in full at 9 a.m. Participating is as simple as showing up at the church, which is at 210 NW 3rd Street in Cedaredge, at the intersection of NW 3rd Street and NW Aspen Avenue.
