jackOur September meeting will be in the Story Time Room at the Moore Public Library (225 S Howard Ave, Moore, OK) instead of our usual meeting place, due to the State Fair. For those unfamiliar with Moore, here is a map.

Connie will present our project for this month – a jack-o-lantern illuminated with an electric tea light.
