April Highlights


April was host to our 8th Annual Stroll 'N' Roll. The event was fantastic and raised over $13,000 to help support our programs. The Wylie Center is thrilled to see the many supporters of our programs come out to Shamel Park in Riverside and participate in the games and activities.
The Wylie Center would like to say, "THANK YOU"  to all that donated. Your generousity will go to support the many programs here at The Wylie Center. The event would not have been a success without the many donors who opened their hearts and gave to this special event. To view a complete list of donors,click here. Read More


Game of the Month
Simon Says:
First choose someone to be Simon-usually an adult or parent. Have the children stand in line, and with the phrase "Simon Says", ask them to do something. Such as: "Simon Says stand on one foot", or "Simon Says touch your nose". Have fun with this, you'll get many laughs with this game!! Now simply ask the children to do a move without saying Simon Says. Did someone move, and Simon didn't say? "oops" they must sit out! This continues until only one child is left standing, he or she is the winner.
