The address of the Preschool is 9800 Westport Road, Louisville, KY 40241.  The celebration will be from 1p-4p on Saturday, April 13.  There will be a special time of praise & worship starting at 2p.  We will have a bounce house, some light snacks, and a chocolate fountain!  (that last one was Lizzy’s special request!).
