November Events  
  
November at LME Library
Our Red Scarf Project has been doing quite well.  So far we have collected around 47 handmade scarves.  These scarves will be distributed by Foster Care 2 Success in February 2013.  Guidelines are available on the LME Library website http://lmelibrary.org and scarves will be collected through December 1st.  If you don't know how to crochet but are willing to learn, there are 2 programs scheduled in November to help you master the art of single and double crochet.  Please join us on November 7 and Nov 14 and bring a "size H" crochet hook.  We will have work sessions from 2:30-3:30pm or 5-6pm both days, and we have yarn available to get you started.  If you already know how to crochet and want to help, you can join us too!     

Our Friends of the Library group now has a booksale corner in the library.  A selection of fiction, non-fiction, children's, and non-print materials are available every day.  Everything is a free-will donation so no prices are marked.  Over the years, the Friends have supported the library by donating materials, furniture, equipment, and funds for children's programs. Books and materials can be donated all year long.

November is National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo, the world's largest writing event.  Participants pledge to write 50,000 words in a month, starting from scratch and reaching "The End" by November 30th.  So how can you participate?  Go to http://nanowrimo.org/ to register and for more information.  Peoria NaNoWriMo participants can also find local events and community members at http://nanowrimo.org/en/regions/usa-illinois-peoria.  NaNoWriMo is a great time to start that novel you've always meant to write!

Princeville Garden Club
 HERE'S THE DIRT       By Anne Abbey

November 1, 2012
  
The Princeville Garden Club meeting was held at 6:30 p.m. at Green View Nursery where we were met by Ashley Simper and Franklin Susen in a covered outdoor area (chilly) which had been decorated with twinkle lights and made festive for the group.  Ashley brought coffee as a warmer upper! Franklin provided the demonstration on how to construct a holiday porch pot using various species of pine, arborvitae, boxwood, red twig dogwood, birch twigs and "Winter King" hawthorn berries.  All members who wished to make a Holiday Porch Pot were then provided with a pot, clippers and greens to create their own masterpieces.  I do believe a chilly, but good time was had by all.  A handout was also provided with additional idea suggestions.  Franklin gave the pot he created as a door prize to Anne Abbey.

Our hostess and host for the evening, Janet Rasmussen and Kenny Hohenberry provided cider, various cookies, and candy as treats.


TREASURER'S REPORT - Treasurer, Cathie Maguire reported deposits of $30.00 and no expenses.

NEW BUSINESS - The subject of donating to food pantries or food baskets was put before the group.  After some discussion a motion was made by Janet Rasmussen and seconded by Anne Abbey to donate $100 to the Wyoming Christmas Baskets and $100 to the Heart of Prince holiday baskets.


DOOR PRIZE - Our door prize of a Christmas Cactus was won by Kenny Hohenberry.

DECEMBER MEETING - The next meeting to be held December 6, 2012 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lillie M. Evans Library will be our Christmas Potluck.  We have a lot of excellent cooks in our group, so bring a favorite recipe for members to sample.

Guests are always welcome.

The hostesses for the meeting will be the officers, Martha Macy, Cathie Maguire and Anne Abbey.
