Teen Dumbledore's Army - Oct. 11 @ 6:15

Last month was the first meeting of Dumbledore's Army! Teens were able to craft their own wands, get their wand permit, and take a quiz to find out what their wand was made of. If you missed the meeting last month, don't despair! We are meeting up again this Thursday, October 11, at 6:15 PM.

This month may get a bit spooky as we are going to make our own dementors. The craft can be a bit messy, so wear appropriate clothing! Hope to see you there!
