CRAFT NIGHT for the month of February will be held on Tuesday, February 7th at 7:00 in the Lounge. Kathie Miller will again be teaching us how to make a couple of cards. Yes, she is back by popular demand. One of the cards will be a Valentine's Day card and the other not yet determined. To defray the cost of supplies the class fee will be a very reasonable $3. We need to have a count of all those planning on attending so Kathie can be sure to have enough supplies for everyone. You can register by signing up in the Sign-Up Book under the Craft section or by giving Joyce Groff a call at 627-1901 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
