 APL Tests Cookbooks: A Book and Food Club     7:00


Soup is on the menu for our January meeting. Not only is it appropriate seaonally, but we will not be trying to transport liquids neatly to the library. We have copies of the New England Soup Factory cookbook, and will be getting more of Love Soup. Any recipe from those cookbooks, or similar online will do. Give us a call at 781-982-2139 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange for a cookbook, or if you have any questions.

February 11
Valentine's Zoom Show and Tell     4:00
We are putting craft bags together with supplies for Valentine cards and some tin ornaments. We will go through how to decorate the tin for those who have not done it, and how to make an envelope for those odd sized cards. Then we will do Show and Tell and see all the decorations you have made. Join us on Zooom and register here for your invite:
For the tin decorating you will need a magazine, a pencil, and if you want to color permanent markers. The edges of the rtin can be sharp so supervision for our younger crafters is recommended.
