CommunityThink at Groton Public Library beginning Tuesday, Sept. 9!

We have indeed secured a space at the
Groton Public Library in Room 2 on
Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 for a
6-week series beginning Tuesday, September 9th!

We seem to once again have the fabulous dilemma of more offerings than available space, so we are being as creative as possible with the Library and nearby area opportunities:

September 9, 9:30-11:30
Introductory Social Hour, Information Exchange, CommunityThink Service Project Planning
- Please bring your ideas, resources, curriculum, etc to share!
- Sign-up, planning, materials list distribution (as needed) for classes
- Sign-up and planning of community service project. Ideas include: ongoing food and/or clothing drive, blanket-making project. Bring your ideas, pet projects, website resources.
