The ICS Musical Theatre team is proud to present..

Based on Arnold Lobel’s Belovd children’s books, A Year with Frog and Toad is a whimsical musical that tells the story of two best friends: The cheerful Frog, and the grumpy Toad. The musical follows Frog and Toad through four colorful seasons, from hibernation to hibernation.

It’s Almost Time for the Annual Clothing & Book Swap
 Saturday, October 12th from 11-2 in the ICS Cafeteria.
All funds raised will support Take Flight Travel scholarships!

You are very welcome and encouraged to join–it’s a great chance to get clothes and books for you/your family at a VERY reasonable cost!

Accepting Donations: Friday, October 11 between 4 and 6, Saturday between 9 and 11, and throughout the swap.

  • All donations of gently worn clothing and books are welcome. 
  • Please do not bring us your ripped/stained/yucky clothing.
  • Anyone is welcome to come and “shop” for a suggested donation of $20.
  • Shoppers can take as much as they can for their $20 donation.
  • Volunteers arrange the clothes and books according to size and type of clothing. 
  • Doors open at 11 for shopping!

If you want to donate clothes/books but don’t want to shop on Saturday, that’s fine! We’ll take your stuff. If you just want to come and shop on Saturday, it’s okay if you don’t bring anything. (But why not take this opportunity to clear out your extra clothes/books??)

If you have questions or would like to volunteer contact Tr. Michelle michellec@icscharter.com
