Mi Rancho, Graduation and a Yard Sale... Oh my!

The Family Place held a successful yard sale on Saturday, June 15th - so successful, in fact, that we have extended our yard sale until Wednesday, June 19th! If you're interested, feel free to drop by! We will be continuing the sale today until 4pm, and tomorrow it will be held from 1:30-4pm! Most items are under $5.00 - everything from adult and children's clothing to accessories, toys, and household items! Tonight, June 18th, we are holding a fundraiser at Mi Rancho in Silver Spring from 6-10pm. All are welcome to come out and support us at this great, fun-filled event! Those who donate $25.00 or more will be gifted with a Family Place tumbler - a great way to travel with your favorite drink in the morning! Those who donate $10.00 or more will be gifted with a Family Place pen. Tomorrow, June 19th, marks our graduation ceremony for those students who participate in our programs! Join us at 10am to support our graduates as they receive their diplomas and awards for work well done! Graduation will be held at St. Stephen Church and the Incarnation Episcopal Church on the corner of 16th and Newton! Come show your support for our grads!
