Kids of All Ages!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 25 from 4 – 6 p.m. when Arthurdale Heritage will be hosting our annual Ice Cream Social. Our Junior Board Members are planning this year’s event and it is sure to be a lot of fun.

That date is the second Saturday after school starts, so spread the word to all Preston County kids that they’re invited to the party.

Following the Ice Cream Social, the AHI Jr. Board will be hosting a Back to School dance in the Center Hall from 7-9 p.m. Admission is $5 for students grades 4th-8th and refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
