My plan is to start our meeting with book discussion, break for lunch and then creative time! On the agenda:
While reading the Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs, I am challenging the girls to each find one wonder of our community and create a painting to reflect that wonder. Those paintings will then be displayed in their very own art gallery at our Community's Riverside Festival, wherein we will be raffling off themed baskets of books to benefit our town's renaissance committee (which hosts the festival). Additionally, I am having postcards created with the girls' paintings printed on them to sell - all profits will be donated to another community foundation - possibly the library ... seems fitting!
