Bees, Honey & Apples

Rosh Hashanah PJ Library Event!

Sunday, September 10 at 11 a.m.

JCC

ALL kids through age 8 welcome

 

The Pennsylvania Honey Queen will be at the JCC to teach us all about bees and honey! Without bees and pollination we wouldn't have any apples. We'll cut open some apples and see the important works that bees provide. We'll also enjoy an apple snack.

Finally, kids will help put together special Rosh Hashanah apple and honey care packages for our seniors and friends in the community!

 

This event is FREE and all kids through age 8 are welcome! 

 

RSVP is required to Amanda by September 8 at amandah@jfreading.org or 610-921-0624.
