Teton County Parks & Recreation sends word that they are in need of the following items for a large-scale children’s crafts project. The Kids Club After School program will undertake the project in December. If you or your friends are inclined to save items from your recycling, TCP&R can use the following items; these can be dropped off at the Rec Center in town….that’s where the big pool is, ya’ll. Thanks from them, in advance for your…
Small cardboard boxes – cereal boxes – snack boxes – paper towel tubes – toilet tissue tubes – extra cardboard – plastic bottles – socks – buttons – any small and large boxes – egg cartons.
What, no string? No yarn? Ask about yarn and string.

Item #2: National Museum of Wildlife Art’s “Harvest on the Hill”
One of the valley’s favorite fall family traditions happens soon: The National Museum of Wildlife Art’s November “Harvest on the Hill” celebration. The special First Sunday event takes place Sunday, November 1, 1-4:00 pm, at the museum. Free to area locals – the first 600 to arrive get a free T-shirt – the afternoon is filled with fun events. A “Harvest” stalwart, Deanna Banana the Clown, will be on hand. The musical group Two Rivers will perform their own brand of “Celtic Western” music and a leaf print arts project activity for kids and adults takes place 1-3:00 p.m. And, of course, be sure to enjoy the Museum’s galleries; leave your cider in the lobby, though!
Arrive early! The tees are popular and this is one of Fall’s best family events. Gets you in the spirit. Leaf bag fights optional. For information, call 307.733.5771.
Item #3: LMC’s Boo-yah!
Lyndsay McCandless Contemporary’s Halloween party plan is this: Macbeth Party! The gallery space hosts a “lively evening” of costume contests and playing around, Halloween-style. There will be sword fights, and members of Off Square Theatre’s Macbeth cast will make spooky, spectral appearances. Bring lots of garlic and dry ice for the cauldron. The fun happens October 30, 6-9:00 pm at Lyndsay McCandless Contemporary, on South Jackson Street.
Item #4: Coffee
My friend Jim VanNostrand, who is in St. John’s hospital, inspired by a giant hospital coffee machine, asked me to put this bit of philosophy on my blog: “There Is No Life Before Coffee!”
Feel better, Jim! Love, Tammy
