Hey Chicktime Columbia!
We are back ! We have figured out how we can have workshops despite the risk of Covid. We will have drop off workshops! We will put together the same wonderful monthly activities and drop off the activities for the House of Ruth to do on their own. We still get to love and encourage them, but just not in person… for now. We hope that will be soon!
