Build-It-Up, Take-It-Down

Children are invited to stop by the Warren Public Library’s Children’s Department on Thursdays from 3 to 5 p.m. to play and learn. Made possible due to the Cruise into Kindergarten statewide early literacy initiative, Build-It-Up, Take-It-Down provides children ample STEM opportunities for learning by playing with large wooden blocks, LEGO, and Bloco Robots along with other toys that enhance the experience. Such play builds math, science, literacy, language, social and creative skills. The children can enjoy creative building, but they are expected to take down their structures when they are through. This program is geared for ages three to eight, though all are welcome. Pre-registration is not required.

New Season Old Collectibles

The Warren Antiques Study Club held its opening luncheon on Monday, Sept. 25, at Jackson Valley Golf Club President Crissi Winans welcomed members to the meeting. The program for the luncheon was “Getting to Know the Antiques of the Antiques Study Club.” Ladies mingled in small groups and discussed three of their favorite collectibles and memorabilia. A wide array of treasures was shared with members including books, china furniture, jewelry, paintings, and toys.

Executive board members Crissi Winans, Kim Anderson, Priscilla Breese, and Marianne Fernstrom provided an assortment of delicious punch and desserts. Priscilla Breese decorated the dining tables with sunflower autumn bouquets.

Following the luncheon, Crissi Winans conducted the business meeting. The club motto, “preserving yesterday and today for tomorrow,” was recited. Margery Smith, past president, was commended for her diligent work and smooth transition to elected board members. Pat Slattery, poet laureate, read “September” by Helen Hunt Jackson, a poem depicting fall’s arrival. Ruth Barnes Shaw, program chairwoman, discussed a calendar of events including an excursion to a local highlight, guest speakers, and the holiday luncheon.

The next meeting of the Antique Study Club will be on October 23, when members tour a local “merry go round museum” in Warren County.
