COMMUNITY PROGRAMMING

 

Thank you Ashland community members for making this past 2014-2015 Community Programming series a success!

These programs reached more than 250 Ashland parents, other adults, and youth. We will be creating the 2015-2016 programming calendar soon and would like community input to help us plan for the upcoming year.

If you have any suggestions or recommendations, we would love to hear from you. Please email Betsy Emberley at:
