Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events

By Katie M

The weekend is almost here, Smarty friends! And isn't nice to have one place online that lists the kind of events you're really looking for? Whether you're still on the consignment sale trail, looking to use your creativity, seeking a great show on stage, gearing up for Easter, or are just curious about fly fishing - our list below has something for everyone. As usual, if you know of another great family event that we did not mention, please add in the comment section below.

And right after the weekend, there is event on Tuesday, March 31st that caught our attention and thought we'd share. "Surviving The Teen Years Without Murder, Mayhem, and Misfortune," will be presented by Michie Dew and Dr. Heather McCain at the Piedmont School in High Point. Visit the web site for more information.

We went to Community Day at Reynolda House this afternoon. It was packed and everyone had a terrific time. I never knew they did those, so I thank you for passing along the information. We needed a day to be outside after all this rain! The house itself was so fun to tour, too. My children really enjoyed seeing the bowling alley and pool!
