February Weekend Events: Love All Around 02/18-20

February is such an awesome month and is known as “the Love month”. Just as “Cupid” shoots arrows of Love on February 14th, let’s carry that Love All Around us into every area of our lives.

This weekend we can show love to our children, our significant others and spouses, and to our community.

Won’t you join in and spread Love All Around!


On Friday…

Celebrate the Love between Fathers and Daughters with a Daddy Daughter Date Night at Chik-Fil-A this Friday, Feb. 18th, from 5 – 8pm. You can expect an elegant evening with your loved one at our annual event. Please call our store at 828-264-4660 to reserve your special time or visit us at http://www.cfarestaurant.com/boone/home.

Spend some special well-deserved adult time out with Parents Night Out while your kids have a blast at The Playhouse! Friday, Feb. 18th, from 5:30 to 8:30pm enjoy some time for you as The Children’s Playhouse will take care of kids 18 months-8 years and serve a peanut-free snack all for $12 – 1st child and $6 per additional sibling for 3 hours. And, as always, Parents Night Out is staffed by great Appalachian State University volunteers and supervised by an adult volunteer. Adult supervisors can earn a certificate for a free Parents Night Out, so contact Kathy Parham to volunteer. This happening repeats every month on the third Friday until Sat Apr 30 2011 with all proceeds benefiting The Children’s Playhouse, so call 263-0011 to sign up or visit http://www.goplayhouse.org.
