Happening This Weekend - 4/5/2019

If you see rising clouds of color in the sky, it's coming from South Avenue Elementary's annual Color-A-Thon! Read all about it here, and see how you can get sprinkled in bright color powder while helping to raise money for South Avenue. All are welcome. Registration is available on-site, and some sponsored participant spots are available, donated by teachers and students. South Avenue's librarian Mr. Burke released a new video for it, that you don't want to miss (he plays three different characters).
Sponsored by Antalek & Moore for car insurance.

Color is popping like the spring crocuses at Luxe Optique! We've been featuring the lighter, more delicate looking frames, but now we're plunging back into the bold shapes and colors that designer sabine be is known for. Try on a pair... you might be surprised.
