Hi, I am with Town Hall.

We publish a monthly welcome Town Hall Guide that is mailed weekly to all new residents as they move into your community.

Our Welcome Guide is going to feature only one exclusive business inside each category, and I am searching for a Day Care Facility in your area to fill that spot.

I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail.

Please message me or for immediate assistance, feel free to call or text me on my cell which is listed below.

Thanks.

We are grateful to Canterbury Creek Farm Preschool(located in Ada) for their generous donations to Addie's Pantry. This is the third year they have partnered with us to fight hunger here in Grand Rapids. The outpouring of gifts also helps support Ransom Towers Senior Citizen Pantry, and we provide food and personal care items to DART the Domestic Assault Response Team through the 61 District Court.

All of us working together make a difference!!

Canterbury Creek Farm School has exceeded all of our expectations - I can’t recommend it enough! The teachers are beyond caring, welcoming, and joyful. The outdoor environment is magical and the classrooms are cozy and creative. My daughter loves the variety of experiences from brushing the pony to nature hikes to making art in the silo. I love that she’s in such good hands. We’ll miss Canterbury all summer and so grateful for this unique preschool experience. ❤️
Thank you for a fantastic picnic! Hope everyone has a great Summer!
We are still ISO video of the Halloween program if somebody could please send us a copy. Thank you😊

We have 3 new goat “kids” that were born this week!! 2 mini Nubians and 1 Nigerian dwarf.

Stella had twins on Sunday morning and Oreo surprised us with a kid today! It was picture day at the East school and then I got a call that Oreo had a baby. All of the afternoon students got to see a fresh goat kid, who was born out in the pasture. 💕 A memory that I hope they will always remember!

It is with a very heavy heart that we write to tell you that our pony, Taloulah has passed away.

Taloulah has been the "Queen" of Farm School for over 17 years. She was about 27 years old and has given thousands of pony rides at Farm School. She was a favorite to many and will truly be missed by students staff and all the other animals.

If you have a favorite memory of Taloulah we would love to read it below.
