Several afterschool programs are being offered by OSU Extension and their partners, Art Accelerated and Latimer Quilt and Textile Center. These programs are for a variety of ages and interest. Class sizes are limited and pre-registration is required.
Looking outside the ribbon-wrapped box for an experience gift this year? Gift Certificates are available. Experience gifts have the added bonus of not adding to the clutter at home.
