We had a Rockin' Good Time

I just wanted to share what a great time I had at the "Every Family Rocks" event at the Science Center. This was my first time attending and my 4 year old daughter had the best time! Your event was so well organized and I was amazed at all the great interactive activities that were available for the children. I just wanted to share what a great time we had and how impressed I was with all the vendors and activities.

Thank You,
