It's the Great Pumpkin Party!

We're having our fourth annual "It's the Great Pumpkin Party"!

Make a pumpkin craft: we'll make "stained glass" pumpkins you can hang in your window at home.

Make a pumpkin cookie: We'll provide plain pumpkin-shaped cookies--YOU have to turn it into...a jack-o-lantern? Who knows? We'll give you bits and pieces, you make your own treat.

Drink apple cider: Cider Hill is generously giving us apple cider for the third year in a row! What great sports :)

Watch a movie: It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Of course!

Adventures with Grapenut: A Peek Into the Life of a Loon

You don't have to be a kid to enjoy the very entertaining and true story of "Adventures With Grapenut" --A peek into the life of a loon. Journey with Grapenut through all stages of growth: chick to juvenile to adult loon. Children will come away with new insights, respect for and understanding of the day-to-day life of the Common Loon. Marvel at all the fascinating facts and amusing anecdotes about loons. For example: loons have heavy bones that make their water landings more like a controlled belly flop than the graceful landings of ducks! Hint: there may also be another reason! Audiences will be amazed with the many up close and personal loon photos that depict such clear details and provide such keen insight into what makes loons such unique birds! Grapenut will capture children's attention and hearts with his often surprising and startling actions growing up and as he interacts with his adopted human friend. After the show, children will greatly enjoy participating in hands-on loon activities that clearly demonstrate what makes this living dinosaur such a unique and special waterbird.

Thursday, Sept. 22 at 6pm at the Seabrook Library.
