  • & The library is preparing to host the Norwalk Public Library Easter Egg Hunt. We are looking for donations of wrapped candy that will fit into the eggs for the hunt. You can also pick up a bag of eggs from the library to fill with candy. Please have the eggs back to the library by March 27th if you choose to help out this way. Many hands make light work! All we ask is that you put a small piece of tape on the egg to help keep them closed when we toss the eggs at the park the day of the event. You can just donate the candy and we will fill the eggs. Either way we appreciate any help you give. The area kids seem to love this event and we want to continue having it.
  • & Engineering Club will meet again March 18th 9:30-10:30 a.m.
