Turkey Time Fum

The Children's Department will be celebrating the turkey in a couple of programs coming up this week.   On Thursday, November 17 at 4:30 pm, children 3-12 years old can make an edible turkey cookie craft and do some fun decorations for Thanksgiving.   This program requires tickets.  They are free and available starting 30 minutes before the program.
