LEGO Club/Project Meeting - Oct. 26

I would like to invite you to our second LEGO Project meeting. Noah is a youth leader for the LEGO project who is very passionate and knowledgeable about the LEGO project. October's topics include: a building demonstration, building time to practice skills, and determining the November build challenge. Noah would like you to join him and me at the second LEGO County-wide project meeting, on Tuesday, October 26.  Please RSVP by October 25 to Tracy, so we have a headcount for the meeting.  

Each meeting will have a building challenge. This is a project that the youth work on at home during the month with whatever LEGO blocks they have. The build challenge that will be presented at the October meeting is making a LEGO car. Please email a picture of your child's LEGO Challenge Creation to Tracy as the youth will have the opportunity to share this at the monthly meeting. 

There will be LEGO building bricks provided at the meeting, so no need to bring any! If you cannot join us for this meeting; no worries, join us at a future one! Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend. Please reach out if you have any questions.
