September is here! This means that autumn (my favorite season, by the way) is almost here. September at CMOM will bring some exciting things! For starters, we will be open from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Labor Day (September 3). On September 15, there is the Children’s Choice Presidential Election, from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. Children can cast their vote for president in this interactive, educational program about voting and the presidential election. They will register to receive their own voting card, create campaign buttons and posters for their favorite candidate, cast their vote in a real voting booth and take part in interactive games, crafts and activities to introduce the presidential election process and our judicial system. Spin the wheel to answer trivia questions about our past presidents and win prizes. All votes will be counted and results posted on our website and in The Commercial Appeal.
Later this month, there is the second annual Children’s Ball. The Ball will be on September 28, from 6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. More info can be found here.
