SunriseVillageIowa.org "LIKE" us on Facebook! Tie-Dyed Triumph! Our 2nd annual Tie-Dye in the Park event on May 11th was an undeniable success! We didn't let a little drizzle and chilly temps keep us from fun, and neither did our 100+ guests.

Sometimes I get asked, “How do you do it?!” Depending on the day, the answer ranges from “I don’t have a choice” to “Not very well”.  Due to the additional challenges that 2
