The Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) program held a group meeting on Tuesday, Feb.12, presented by the Carlisle Public Library.

The theme for this month’s meeting was The Wizard of Oz. The children followed the Yellow Brick road to have their pictures taken with the Lion, Tin Man, Scarecrow, Glenda the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch of the West.

The craft was making a picture frame to put the picture in and take home. Children and families also participated in activities including, looking for Dorothy and Toto throughout the library, eating popcorn and watching the movie. Students were all given a balloon animal and goody bag.

Hippy would like to thank Lynnette Ward, Donna Young, Jane Ann Harper, Jesse Young, Joshua Mosby, Shirley McGraw, and Andrea Elmore for making this such a special Group Meeting.

In attendance were William Corter, Shelbi Melcher, Luke Caviness, Chad McCary, Kiersten Taylor, Kylie McClain, Nathan Butler, Alex Ruiz, Caleb Julian, Bailey Hall, Kimora Bogard, and Brody Martin. The next Hippy Group Meeting is March 12.
