Otherwise, crafters can drop in with their own projects!

October's Craft: Fairy Lanterns!

We'll provide moss, jars, tea-lights, paint, and fairy silhouettes for you to create your own beautiful fairy lanterns to put out all season long.

World War I Songs and Stories

Ramblin' Richard returns!

 

It was 100 years ago.  The United States declared war on Germany in 1917 and we became participants in World War I.  Europe was in turmoil in the early teens, monarchies were flexing their muscles seeking to expand their borders, and their emboldened leaders brought war to the continent.  The “Great War” had begun a few years earlier in 1914 and ended in 1918 with the November 11 th armistice.   But then an unexpected event burst onto the scene, tragically taking many more lives than the war itself.  Richard tells this compelling story, as well.
