They’re Watching You!

Have you ever seen a photograph that seems to follow you with its eyes? Join us Thursday at 2:00 and we’ll show you how to make your own creepy Halloween decorations out of old-fashioned photographs.

If you’re not one of the lucky ones off school tomorrow, stop by the Teen Zone to pick up what you need to make your own project at home.

Teen Yoga resumes Oct. 1

Join Sarah for yoga in the Auditorium every Wednesday from 4:00-4:45 pm. Wear comfy clothes and bring a mat, if you have one.
Yoga can help with a myriad of  issues; confidence, flexibility, stress, depression, or even just be a fun thing to do with friends. And don’t worry, ”If you can breathe, you can do yoga” Krishnamacharya (the father of modern yoga).


Please bring a signed permission slip with you for our records.
