We'll also be planning for the Fall Plant Sale at the library on October 14th. Janet has been gathering up plants from several sources, and volunteer opportunities are already available if you need more hours. 

Lucy still needs a few more volunteers to sign up for the Ant Booth at the Peanut Festival-- another great opportunity to add some hours. 

Hoping to see you Thursday,
