We miss the events at the library, so we had our own Noon Year's Eve party. We made crowns and a New Year wish chain. Hopefully, we can celebrate with the library next year!
We completed our successful summer reading knew the code word ALOHA🌺🏝 and received a fun graphic bag of gifts and candy!
We did our fox craft! Practice cutting, folding and coloring! 🦊
I fell coming out of my shower last year, and can only get around with a walker. I am now desperate for books to read. Can I get 4 or 5 tomorrow? Sue Paul
