Volusia Mall is proud to introduce Volusia KIDS, a new monthly kids club taking place at the Play Area by JCPenney. The club will be held every third Thursday of the month from 9:30am – 10:30am, and will include themed stories and activities.
“We’re so excited to bring this new club to the mall,” said Kristina Circelli, Marketing Director for the Volusia Mall. “Our goal is to combine education and fun through storytime and hands-on activities that are perfect for kids and their parents.”
Each month, Volusia KIDS will start with storytime and then follow with related arts and crafts, presentations, and much more, depending on the monthly theme. The mall’s kickoff event is Thursday, April 19th, with the theme of “Mother Nature.” The event will include a reading of The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister, a live animal presentation by the Lyonia Environmental Center, arts and crafts with Macaroni Kids, coloring, and more.
“We partnered with Books-A-Million to make sure we always have a fun and engaging book – or books! – to read, with extra copies on hand if parents want to bring the book home,” continued Circelli. “Then we partner with the community based on each monthly theme, from local law enforcement and health organizations to Macaroni Kids and Volusia County schools. The opportunities are virtually endless for what we can do and what we can offer to the community.”

Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) knows what recreational boaters will be doing this summer, and offers ways that membership ($24) with the national advocacy, services and safety group can save you money on three summertime ‘must-dos’:
Fill up the tank. The number of times boaters fill up their tank each boating season can be an indicator of how much fun they’re having. There’s more joy, however, when there’s a discount at the gas dock. More than 350 BoatUS Partner Network Marinas offer BoatUS members up to $.10 off per gallon of fuel.
Get a transient slip. Spending a night away from the home dock is a time-honored summer boating tradition. Over 600 BoatUS Partner Network marinas offer BoatUS members up to a 25% discount on transient slip fees – essentially four nights for the price of three.
Buy boat gear and supplies. Even the boater who has everything wants a new accessory for the boating season. Accessories, equipment and other gear for the boating life, from anchors to zincs, can be purchased at West Marine, where BoatUS members earn a $10 reward certificate for every $250 spent.
BoatUS has more ways to save, from fishing tackle and sail repairs to guide services and online boat classifieds with Vivaboats. To join for $24, go to BoatUS.com/membership.
