New Mother's Day Create and Take event planned at Roeland Park Community Center on May 11

Bring mom to the Roeland Park Community Center on Saturday, May 11, where she and the whole family can create artwork worthy of the woman of the house.

This new special event is called Mothers Day Create and Take and being presented by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District. Lunch will be served and each family member will receive their own canvas to paint and take home the same day. Examples will be available, but individuality and creativity are encouraged.

This program will take place beginning at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 11. The cost for this 90-minute program, which includes lunch and art supplies, is $14 per adult for Johnson County residents or $15 per adult for nonresidents. For youth, the cost is $10 per child for Johnson County residents or $11 per child for nonresidents. May 3 is the registration deadline for this program.
