Hooray for Squirrels!

October is Squirrel Awareness Month. Come to our celebration of these bushy tailed creatures on Wednesday, October 22 at 3:40 pm. Listen to a squirrel story, go on an acorn hunt, make a squirrel mask, and watch a squirrel cartoon while eating Squirrel Sundaes--our own creation of butternut (or vanilla) ice cream, caramel topping, and whipped cream. In the meantime, read one of our delightful squirrel tales:
