Monday, December 5 brings the next installment of our Spice of the Month Club, and this time Nutmeg is on the menu.  We will have a few samples to try around 10 am. We had a great response to last month’s spice and can’t wait to hear what you think of nutmeg in the drinks and sweets recipes included in the pack or your own inventive option. While you’re here for a spice packet, stay for the laughter and conversation during the Knitting Group meeting from 10 am—noon.

For coffee and book lovers Roasts & Reads also starts at 10 am. Cozy up by the fireplace to share what you’ve been reading, chat with your neighbors, and get inspiration for new reads and authors to pursue.
