    Veteran’s pool is closed until further notice due to a problem with its filtration system.

    • I’ve updated the Tot Splash event at Vets Park to list as Cancelled. I have shared news of the closing on Facebook and mentioned it in the Father’s Day post, but I hadn’t thought about the Tot Splash events which started today. Thanks for the reminder. I’ll update once the pool is opened.

  • Halloween Science Fun Day for youth 4-10 years of age, Sunday, October 16 and 23 (will be canceled, if raining), starting at the Botanical Gardens and with clues, a road trip will bring around the area, integrating math/science, Halloween Fun, and prizes.

    RSVP required for directions

    Free

    Write Captain@anchorsciencefun.com for details, to offer in-kind donation or volunteer

    The TinkerLab program at Ypsilanti District Library, Michigan Avenue branch – is incorrectly listed as Tuesdays at 11 am. The correct time is actually Tuesdays at 2 pm. Please change the listing. This is a permanent change, for all Tuesdays going forward. It is not at 11 am. Thank you!
