Rainbow Child Care Center Celebrates Summer with Mobile Science Lab

Rainbow Child Care Center (Rainbow), a provider of academic-focused, early-childhood education with more than 120 centers across 12 states, recently celebrated its annual Summer Social with local families and special guest, Clarity Newhouse, professional race car driver.

Families that attended the event at Rainbow’s center in Walker, enjoyed interacting with Newhouse and getting an up-close look at her race car.  Doubling as a Mobile Science Lab, Newhouse’s race car provided young students an opportunity to explore science, technology, engineering and math during a fun, hands-on science lesson.

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY

On Independence Day, Americans will celebrate our country’s freedom with fireworks, family, and friends. Amidst the fun and hoopla, let’s pause to remember the supreme price of freedom. The holiday is Independence Day. The day it is celebrated is July 4th. Because freedom is our most revered right as citizens of the United States, Independence Day encompasses a whole Fourth of July weekend to celebrate.

Let’s hoist up our American flags, prominently wear our red, white, and blue, and proudly show our dedication to those to whom we owe this weekend: our nation’s veterans and U.S. military.

As the world’s largest women’s patriotic service organization, the American Legion Auxiliary thanks the brave men and women who fought – and continue to fight – at home and abroad, along with their families who sacrificed along with them to allow us the privilege to live in the Land of the Free because of the brave.

God Bless America, and Happy Independence Day!

Senior Citizens: Trivia Helps keep your Mind Alert

Senior Citizens: Trivia Helps keep your Mind Alert

About two years ago, I received an e-mail asking if I was interested in getting a Trivia Question on a daily basis? I was very skeptical with all that can happen with a computer when replying to the wrong person or site. Anyway, I replied with a YES and since that time, I get one or two Trivia Questions each day. In fact, not only do I get the questions, I usually receive another e-mail that gives information about subjects that are very interesting.

I look forward to learning something new each day by answering these questions without cheating. No looking it up on GOOGLE before answering. The site keeps track of my answers and my score stays up in the upper corner where I can see it.  Why not try this? trivia@triviatodayemail.com

Let me know what you think about this site and if you enjoy it?
