Book Club Training
We want as many kids as possible to read Holes and have the opportunity to discuss the novel in book groups. If you (adults and teens) are already connected with a group (Girl Scouts, churches, neighborhoods, etc.) and would like to volunteer to lead a book group, please attend this informative meeting. Teachers, this includes you! We'll have wine and soft drinks, talk about discussion questions, and pass out book group packets with everything you need to host an awesome book club!
Saturday, October 13th, 1-3 p.m.
Habitat For Humanity Work Day Sponsored by Intown Ace Hardware
It's time to get your hands dirty! In order to fully understand Stanley's daily tasks, we are going to dig some holes of our own—and in addition to building character, we'll also be doing some landscaping! Join us for a special work day, sponsored by Habitat for Humanity and Intown Ace Hardware, to dig in the dirt for a good cause. Space is limited, so please email us to sign up.
