Every month is about family for the Agassiz Harrison Early Years Committee. However, February in particular is special because of Family Day on Feb. 9 and of course Valentine’s Day on Feb. 14. February is all about love. Fortunately, this love is spread throughout the month with many activities and events for you and your family.

The first exciting event is the Early Years’  2nd Annual Love Your Community Scavenger Hunt. Grab your stroller and your walking shoes and start the hunt.
