About Crane Community Christmas
Crane Community partners have invited the local Head Start groups, along with a few of the area daycares, to join us for a Christmas-themed day of STEM activities. We have over 300 children ages 3-5 scheduled to be here from Martin, Daviess, and Greene Counties, along with over 100 adult teachers, chaperones, and volunteers.
