Book Club


We had Book Club on Monday, March 27 where we discussed this book by Nancy Rue.

It was even more interesting since we had a book clubber who has gotten her motorcycle endorsement!  She even brought in photos for us to see!
Our next book club will be on Monday, April 24th when we will be discussing the Titanic book The Girl Who Came Home by Hazel Gaynor.

We also passed out Gone With The Wind which will be our May book for book club.  We wanted to make sure that we had it ordered for everyone because it's such a big book! 
Contact us for more information on book club, we are happy to have you join us as we discuss books over food and tea!

Teen council title.jpg


For Teen Council we had delicious home made shamrock shakes (we do every year) and we used all that sugar to play scrabble.

This was a SUPER fun Teen Council.  Who knew coming up with words could be so difficult?

Our next teen council won't have delicious shamrock shakes, but it will involve a whole lot of fun.  If the weather is nice, we will be playing kickball outdoors.  We did that last summer and it was so fun the teens requested we do it every year!

Make your own shamrock shakes!  This is all you need: 

Three- ish scoops of vanilla ice cream; one and half-ish cups of milk; peppermint extract (or mint); green food coloring (just for fun!).  Mix together.  Then you can add reddi-whip, sprinkles and a cherry.  It is sooooooo good!


We were just made aware of this website to help you find a JOB.  A job sounds fun, yes???  Here it is -> Jobs For Teens HQ


Toddler Time kicked off on January 24.  We get together every Tuesday at 10:30am.  There is a time to color, then singing, story time, craft to make, snack to eat and play time with toys.  Every week we try to update facebook with that days Toddler Time.  Come on out and join in the fun!



Story Time is getting a new twist on an old favorite.  We will have Saturday Story Time twice a month.

What a fun tea party and Easter Egg hunt we had on April 22.  View all the photos in our facebook album.

One Saturday we will have a movie and one Saturday we will have a K-6th Program.
