Munchkins at the Museum
Munchkins at the Museum is BACK! We had so much fun last year that we decided to bring our popular early education class back this Fall. This program is specially designed for younger visitors and addresses subjects just for munchkins: letters, numbers, colors, and of course history! The activities are selected specifically for this age group to be both entertaining and educational. The History Museum will be open only to the munchkins and their parents during this hour long session so they can have all the space and time they want.
The Columbia Gorge Breastfeeding Coalition provides a mother-to-mother support group that offers guidance during this important time.
For more information, please call Jennifer McCauley, RN, IBCLC, at 541-387-6344.
Walk through the main entrance of Providence Hood River Memorial Hospital, and chances are you will notice the smell of coffee—and the energy of high school students at Sacred Grounds Coffee Shop. The Youth Transition Program at Hood River Valley High School is using the café to provide valuable work experience for youth with barriers to employment.
