  • Breakfast Station Day: canceled

    • Breakfast Station Day this morning is canceled due to rain and the possibility of lightning. We are sorry to have to make this decision because we love breakfast! But we are concerned for the safety and comfort of everyone who would be out for the event this morning, especially our several dozen volunteers whom we didn’t want to ask to set up and work in these conditions. Here’s to better weather next year!

  • The Learning Loop: postponed

    • Due to Saturday’s weather forecast, including heavy winds, thunderstorms and potential hail, CoMO Connect has decided to postpone The Learning Loop. Almost all of the activities are at outdoor venues and they are reluctant to bring kids and families out in the expected conditions. We will reschedule The Learning Loop in the coming weeks and will keep you updated.
