Come Home to the Country

Time for Tots Preschool will host the 25th Annual "Home to the Country" Craft Show on Saturday, November 12, 2011. The event will be held at the Alwood Elementary School located in Alpha from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Admission to the show is $1.00 with proceeds from the entire craft show going to the Time for Tots program.

We have something for everyone! We have a wide range of craft booths from several vendors throughout the Quad Cities and surrounding area, raffle tickets, concession stand, plus much more!

The "Country Kitchen" will be open for breakfast and lunch during the craft show. Time for Tots has become famous for our delicious chicken salad sandwiches, and this year should be no different.

Established in 1973, Time for Tots Preschool is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing children and parents with quality education and services.
