WEEKLY QUOTE  “Ah, no! I hear the windows rattle fast; I see the first flakes of the gathering snow, That dance and whirl before the northern blast. No countermand the march of days can know. December drops no weak, relenting tear, By our fond Summer sympathies ensnared, Nor from the perfect circle of the year Can even Winter's crystal gems be spared.” – Christopher Pearse Cranch, American writer

MOVIE NIGHT  We’ll be watching an animated movie about secretive pets this Thursday the 15th at 5:30 PM.  You bring your friends; we’ll bring the popcorn.
