Good Books for Good Works - Update          

We are very grateful to our wonderful partners at the Book House and to all of you who came with friends and family to the 2015 “Good Books for Good Works” event.  We raised $800 for the library at the Thomas O’Brien Academy of Science and Technology (TOAST)!  In addition, we will allocate an additional $100 from the James Patterson Foundation grant secured by Susan Novotny in Jill Person’s honor, and will be providing $900 in total to TOAST. 

Thank you also to those who helped with the set up, the food, and the clean up.   We really appreciate everyone’s participation in making this a Great Good Books event.

Tuesdays in the Parlor
First Tuesday of every month

Our Tuesday in the Parlor last month was a great success with good food and lots of good conversation, so don't miss next month's gathering.
Join us for an informal get-together of members and guests and help us celebrate the season of pumpkins and turkeys! Please bring a nip or a nosh to share at our light "supper".
Ongoing Collection

Plastic Jar Lids: Please bring clean, plastic jar lids ranging from 3 to 6 inches diameter from common household items such as peanut butter, mayonnaise, Nutella, etc.  The lids will be used to modify the switches on battery-operated toys for use by children with disabilities. The Northeastern Woodworkers Association makes the bases and the GE Toy Modification Volunteers group does the wiring.
