The book featured for the day will be one from a favorite series, "Mr. Putter and Tabby Catch the Cold." What happens when Mr. Putter catches a cold and who will take care of him? Children of all ages are invited to come and find out, participate in fun activities and get crafty on Wednesday, October 9th at 3:30pm.
The Knitting Society will meet October 10th at 2. Helen will not be able to attend… Who would like to bring cookies???
