Dear --FNAME--,

Happy New Year! Even though the snow is falling, Millbrook Marsh is thinking about SUMMER! We are planning a great roster of Specialty Summer Camps for this year, and working on some new session and fees structures for the Puddle Jumpers Nature Play program. These great things are coming soon! And don't forget, we still have a great menu of programs during the chilly months. We hope to see you out and about at Millbrook Marsh!
