  • WNP Story Time!(WNP Event)

    Jan 30, 2021 11:00am-12:00pm (Saturday) at Virtual Event

    Nicole Meldahl reads classic and history-theme children’s stories live on Saturday mornings. Fun for kids of all ages, even if you’re just a kid at heart. This month we’re reading a very special donation from WNP member Norm Stahl: “Little Toot Through The Golden Gate” by Hardie Gramatky. Our 1975 copy was gifted to his mother-in-law when she retired from teaching Kindergarten at Sunnyside School, and we’re so excited to share it with you.

    This event is free but pre-registration is required to be “in the room” with Miss Nicole. Never fear if you can’t decide before the event is live, however, because it will also be live-streamed via Zoom through our WNP YouTube account.
