Happy Nearly New Year! Celebrate the year of the tiger by making our newest craft: Tiger Bookmarks! Kits in include everything your little ones need to make their own. Recommended for ages 3+, may require help from an adult/supervision around small pieces.

Want to be a part of history?
We hope to have a collection of townspeople’s thoughts and experiences during this Coronavirus crisis. Please see the Coronavirus Fairhaven page where there is a very short list of questions. Also VERY IMPORTANT is getting input from people who are not online, so maybe you could print out the questions and leave them with loved ones for their impressions too. Thank you!
