Join us at the Woonsocket Harris Public Library on Saturday afternoon November 16th for a family craft between 2-3pm.

We will be making birdfeeders out of pinecones. We have lots of colorful yarn to attach to your pinecone. Then  roll the pinecone in vegetable shortening and then roll the pinecone in birdseed! We use vegetable shortening instead of  peanut butter due to allergy concerns. Finished pinecones will be placed in a zip lock bag for safe travels. This is a drop in craft while supplies last. No need to register in advance.

Starr investigated her affair with former President Bill Clinton which prompted his impeachment by the House.        Shares of Boeing are down about six percent after a report of a new problem with its troubled 737 Max planes. Regulators discovered the two flight computers are not communicating with one another during testing last week. Boeing is trading more than 100-dollars less per share than last year.       Hank Azaria is confirming he will no longer be voicing the character Apu on "The Simpsons."
