We thank you all who attended our Christmas Tea with historian, Kathy Wilson!  What a fun afternoon! Thank you’s also need to be offered to Jan J., Susan J, Judy V., Carolyn C., and Jody N. for letting us borrow the tea cups, saucers, and pots.  Special thanks to Kate Durbin for her assistance in making the library beautiful and providing the fancy treats.  This is our final program utilizing the generous funding from the Butler County Community Foundation grant.

We also would like to thank Becky, Ren and Petunia for joining us at our early-out after school program. It was a lot of fun to learn about sled dogs!
