What character will your pumpkin be?
Once again we will be having a Book Character Pumpkin Contest to benefit the Plainville Food Pantry. You create a pumpkin decorated as a favorite book character (please DO NOT CUT the pumpkin) and drop it off at the library on or by Saturday October 14. Between October 16 and 28, Everyone can vote with a canned good as to which pumpkin is the best. All the canned goods go to the Plainville Food Pantry and the pumpkin with the most votes wins a prize! We will be posting pictures on the pumpkins online.
If you are like me, you see a lot of really cute craft and home projects on Pinterest that you want to try but are afraid to have that Pinterest Fail moment. Join the Pinterest CAN’T Fail club at the Plainville Public Library for adult & teens.
Our Next Meeting is Wednesday, October 11 at 7pm
We will be making these adorable wood slice pumpkins. The materials fee will be $6.00 to make a set of 3 pumpkins. We hope to obtain the wood slices from Riley Tree in Plainville. Please register by October 7 to ensure we have your materials. If you cannot attend after you register please email Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org
