Who’s birthday is it?
It’s everyone’s birthday when it’s an “Un-Birthday”!

The Norwin Show Choir put on one of the best “Un-Birthday” parties for the families at HEARTH on Tuesday, May 20, 2014. From face painting, to bag making, to singing and dancing their award winning show, the choir’s performance was flawless.

Special thanks to the seniors, who donated their time on their last day of school! And an extra special thanks to the Norwin Show Choir Class of 2013, who took it upon themselves to continue to fundraise for the agency, raising enough money to purchase an XBOX 360 Kinnect for the Learning Center.
