Arbor Annie’s President’s Day Weekend Picks – February 17-20
I can definitely tell that Ann Arbor is used to Presidents Day weekend being the start of Mid-Winter Break. There are definitely less events on the calendar this weekend than other weekends. Additionally I know a number of people who are adding a few extra days and traveling this weekend.
Girl Scout Cookie Booths
This weekend we are going to be busy with Girl Scout Cookie Booths. If you want cookies, check local grocery stores and more (Kroger, Busch’s, & Lucky’s Market all have booths this weekend). Since I’m going to be outside helping with the booths, we definitely appreciate the warm weather forecast for Saturday and Sunday.
Preschool Open House
Don’t miss our Preschool Guide sponsored by Apple Playschools. Apple Playschools is holding an Open House for all their programs at Manzanitas this weekend.
The warm weather this weekend also means checking your child’s wardrobe for spring. Fortunately, this weekend also marks the first of the Spring Mom2Mom Sales. Check out our Guide for the upcoming sales (and let us know of any we missed).
