Book Club


Monday, April 24th we will be discussed the Titanic book The Girl Who Came Home by Hazel Gaynor.

The book met with all around praise by the book club attendees.  One of our book clubbers brought in a book about the Titanic that she had purchased at the most recent book sale.  Perfect!  Another Book Clubber brought in a factual book of the Titanic and said this novel lined up so perfectly with actual facts. 
We also had a special guest at Book Club who did a read aloud presentation for a school class. We gave her a round of applause. 
Our next book club gathering will be Monday, May 22 at 1pm when we will be discussing Gone With the Wind by Margret Mitchell.  Yes, yes, May is an insanely busy month for so many of us but we figured if we read 33 pages a day we could have it done in time.  Let us know if you would like us to order you a copy so you can join us at our next book club!

Teen Council met up to play Kickball one unusually warm Monday afternoon.  We weren't quite adjusted to the warm weather yet and while we were happy to soak it in, we also got really hot really fast!  The teens played for a little bit and then hung out in the front room together chatting and eating snacks. 

Our Teen Council has so many great kids that are so involved in sports and programs it's difficult to get them all together!  Here are the few that could show up...
