This book centers on 13 year old Matt, left alone to guard the family’s new cabin in the woods. When a stranger steals his gun, Matt knows he has no way to shoot game or to protect himself. Only after meeting the proud, resourceful Indian boy Attean does Matt begin to understand the way of the Beaver clan and their growing problem in adapting to the white man and the changing frontier. A delicious snack will follow a lively discussion. Cupcake Ornament: The holiday fun continues with a program for children 6 and older on making a cute ornament that looks like a cupcake!

When Greg’s dad threatens to send him to military school if he doesn’t stay out of trouble, he finds plenty of new ways to land himself in the doghouse! This movie is rated PG and will be shown on Thurs., December 27 at 6:00 p.m. Children are welcome to bring a snack...and a friend!
