Calling All Creative Club Members!

The Club is looking for new art work and we need your help! 

We are holding an art contest to create new Club thank you cards. Use this Art Contest Template and add drawings, color and words about why you love the Club and how the Club makes you feel.  Try to fill up all the white space and be as creative as you like!

You can print the template at home or pick one up from the folder on the Club’s front door. Submissions are due Monday, April 27, 2020 by 7:00 p.m. Email Meg your entry or drop it at the Club in the dropbox at the front door.

We look forward to seeing all our creative entries.
