Signature Events

All of our Signature Events are major fundraisers for the Community Center. We are grateful to the many sponsors, donors and the community members for supporting us so that we may continue to offer enriching programs for all ages year round.


Western Round-Up

The Western Round-Up is the Preschool’s largest fundraiser for the year, organized by the Parent Board and Parent Committees. Celebrating its 24th year in 2017, the Western Round-Up has become a much anticipated event for the not only current Preschool families, but also Preschool Alumni and the community as a whole.  

The event will be held Saturday March 4th, 2017 from 10:00am until 2:00pm in the Preschool/Community Center parking lot. For more information on ticket sales, silent auction and more please visit the Preschool Website at:


Spring and Holiday Ceramic Sales

Twice a year we have our annual Spring Ceramics Sale (May 12th & 13th, 2017) and our Holiday Ceramics Sale (December 8th, 9th, 10th, 2017). Over 65 local artists come together to sell their work that ranges from everyday useful items to gallery works of art. It’s a feast for the eyes. Not to be missed as there is something for everyone.
