    Gaines Creek Coffee Shop

    Friday, December 8
    7:15 - 10 am
    Gaines Creek Campus, 5677 Oak Blvd.
    We are excited to invite you to the second Gaines Creek Coffee Shop of the year on Friday, December 8, from 7:15-10:00 am! We will serve freshly brewed organic coffee, our famous tacos, and tea. We will also introduce a new Gaines Creek product in the making, made with our very own honey, our Granola Crunch Clusters! We have been working on creating the perfect recipe for weeks, and this Coffee Shop will be the first time it is unveiled to the public. We would love for you to experience our brand-new product and give us feedback. The Coffee Shop will take place in the studio on the Gaines Creek Campus.
    Our busiest time is around 8:30 to 9:00 am, so if your schedule allows flexibility, we would love to see some of you later in the morning. And this is not strictly a parent event. Please bring friends and other family as well.

    Kids in Cars: Child Passenger Safety Program

    We would like to share with you an important safety awareness resource available to families in the greater Austin area. The Kids in Cars program at Dell Children’s Medical Center was created to inform parents and caregivers about the importance of proper car seat installation and usage to protect children when traveling in vehicles. The program provides safety tips to reference and even offers Car Seat Safety Inspections upon request.
