BLOOM X 2! We DOUBLED our programs! Just in time for Columbia Heights Day on Sat.

Greetings Family!

We’re excited to announce 13 new weekly and monthly programs at BloomBars! Most of which you’ll get a free preview this Saturday, September 12th at the 10th Annual Columbia Heights Day Festival. You heard it right, we’ve doubled our current program offerings! It’s all testament to your continued support and belief in our mission.

And speaking of your support, we’ve almost reached our GoFundMe campaign goal to recover from the break-in we informed you about in the last Weekly Bloom.

In addition to our current programs, here’s what you have to look forward to this fall, winter and beyond:

  1. Little Stars! (Ages 2-3) PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED
  2. Harambee Happy Hour (Ages 2-6)
  3. Little Treasures (Ages 0-5)
  4. Learn to Drum! (West African Djembe) (Ages 6-13)
  5. Family Drum Circle (All ages)
  6. Learn the Djembe (Ages 14 and up)
  8. Les Bloom-Artistes (Ages 2-5)  
  9. Samba Baby (Ages 2-6)
