Book Club Winner

OK folks, we have a winner and it's The Cove by Ron Rash. This is a Souther Gothic novel that takes place during WWI.

We're grateful to Laura who's hosting this event in July. Book club members will be receiving the details on that one a little later.

And can I just say that The #1 Ladies Detective Agency was such a joy to read. We all had a blast discussing this fun novel at Jennifer's house a couple of weeks ago.

If you aren't already a book club member, you really should join. Reason #1 we all discovered this amazingly delicious (and healthy) (and kid-friendly) recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie at the last book club meeting. It's "cookie dough" with beans and almond butter. I'm telling you, you have to try it to understand how good it is. Thanks Jennifer!

Until our next meeting, happy reading!

Last Indoor Playgroup of the Season

Can you believe that time is here again! Yes, we'll soon be meeting on Tuesdays only at Cahill Park in Whitefish Bay. Please come to our last indoor playgroup at NSPC on Friday, June 13th.

Last Cleaning of the Year

Friday, May 30th is the last cleaning day of the 2013/14 Family Club year. We could sure use your help to make this thing go smoothly. Bring a pair of rubber gloves and let's get down to business. With your help we can blow through this is less than an hour.

Rummage Sale!
