Happy 1st week of Fall! We hope that the weather andleaves bring you joy this season!With the Fall season comes Pumpkin Spice, Cider Mills and the leaves changing colors. What type of fall activities do you do with your kids? Baking cookies and pumpkin picking are some things I used to do as a child, however COVID has presented a unique situation for how we choose to navigate our lives. Fall can bring great holiday memories and bring you into a festive space! We want to encourage our families this season to go out safelyand participate in some of these traditional activities that will help create a sense of normalcy as well as support some small businesses in the Durham Community. Of course at the Partnership we are advocates for literacy activities for our children and encourage families to addFall themed books to your library! Here are a few events that you and your family can participate in:
