The Moreland Elementary Alumni Reunion was a hit!

reunion2On August 6th there was a historical and monumental event for the Center.  We had more than 60 Moreland Elementary kids return to school for a reunion and open house.  It was a packed house and we all had a blast.  We gave tours, ate goodies, and attendees caught up with old friends while making a few new ones.  Alumnus, Carol Moody, partnered with the Center’s Executive Director, Imani Evans to make this day a success.  We are already planning to do it again.  What a fantastic day!
