Calling all artisans! Monday Muse starts September 13, 7-10 pm. This is an evening of creative inspiration. Bring your own arts and crafts out to share with others. Meet up with people who share your interests or can introduce you to something new. If you love woodworking, metal work,
knitting, crocheting, quilt making, beadwork, shell craft, come out and share your passion with others. A guest artist will start the evening with a short presentation or demonstration of their art. Home artists will offer do-it-yourself kits for hands on learning. Bring your scrap booking materials and get a page or two done, bring your knitting needles and work on your current project, share your photographs of your past accomplishments. We are setting up a lending library of resource materials so if you have any crafts books,
patterns, how-to pamphlets, etc. bring them with you to donate or loan out.
Time to be thinking about Christmas crafts. Come out and get inspired to get started. Members and guests only. Become a member and you can sign in four of your friends and neighbours.
We’re looking for organizers for special events, pool league or tournaments, euchre or cards night, crib and backgammon evenings. Turn that TV off for the night and come out for an evening of fun and fellowship. See you at the legion!
