Did you know that weekly Bingo at KJs is our fundraiser? All proceeds go toward programming that support children and families in our region, not just through our organization, but through donations that we make to other organizations with similar missions. In recent years, we've given to Springfield, VT Parks & Recreation, Springfield Family Center, and Make-A-Wish Vermont just to name a few! What a great way to support your community and have fun on a cold winter day🤍
Do you know about our Monday morning playgroups at the Springfield, VT Parks & Recreation community center? We are so grateful for Michelle Stinson, children's librarian from Springfield Town Library, for joining us each week - all of the books she reads to the children, the songs she sings, and the many wonderful and creative activities she introduces to all of us! Thank you, Michelle!

For more information about our playgroups, please email [email protected], call (802)886-5242, or message us!

Those who caused damage at the Community Center have stepped up and owned their mistake. I want to thank those involved for having the courage to come forward, and their parents for supporting the resolution. We will not be fully staffed the next two days while I (Chris) attend a training. Upon my return Thursday open gym will resume. Open gym will end for the season March 31st. This is due to our need to be outside preparing for the spring sport season. Thank you all for your patience and understanding through this time.


March 19th 12-3pm
Community open gym at the Community Center. All ages welcome.


Don’t wait to register for spring sports!
Much work needs to be done in little time. The sooner we have good numbers the sooner we can take steps forward to the season.


As many of you have seen through other Facebook posts, today there was some damage done to our Birsky-Wyman field at Riverside Park. The good news is damage is repairable. But most importantly I want to thank the kids for owning up to what they did, and the parents for supporting our restorative justice plans to fix the field. This will not only help the kids learn what it takes to maintain these fields for their use, but will help strengthen the Springfield community as a whole.
