LEGO Club will be having the last club meeting for the year.  The monthly build challenge is a castle. Please send all build pictures to Tracy to highlight at the June meeting. The June Meeting will be Tuesday, June 28 from 6:30-8:00 pm. There is a time change as youth will be participating in a LEGO Master Challenge, so we want to allow enough time for youth participation. Evaluations by community judges will be done for each build. Come join us for a celebration of building. Please RVSP for the meeting to ensure we have enough snacks and meeting supplies for everyone! 


We have three activities going on in June. On June 21, we are preparing meals for Loaves and Fishes. We will meet at Pick ‘n Save (Pioneer & Main) at 4 pm to buy the groceries. Then, we will go to Ascension Lutheran Church (901 Cty Rd V, FdL) to prepare the food.
On June 24, the Stommel Family  will be hosting a Game/Movie Night starting at 6 pm. Please bring snacks and drinks. We will be ordering from Paddy's Pizza.
For our June 27 meeting, we will be meeting at the S.W.A.T. headquarters (121 Western Ave, FdL) at 7 pm instead of at Rolling Meadows. The June meeting will not be via Zoom. Let Tina know if you have any questions or would like more information.
