Rowley’s best friend Greg Heffley has been chronicling his middle-school years in thirteen Diary of a Wimpy Kid journals . . . and counting.

But Rowley is a poor choice for the job, and his ‘biography’ of Greg is a hilarious mess.”
Join Greg's friend, sidekick, and biographer, Rowley Jefferson, as he documents their hilarious antics in his journal. ✏️📕 😃 Come and grab your copy today!
April is National Poetry Month!🖋📖 Just as we did last year, we have one of The Frost Place “Pennies for Poetry” jars out for collections during April.
Pennies for Poetry was launched as a fundraising campaign in 2018 to help keep The Frost Place, and all the wonderful programs they offer, up and running. The Frost Place is the former home of beloved poet Robert Frost, which is now a historic museum, as well as a center for poetry and the arts. The Frost Place, as a nonprofit, relies on donations to keep serving the community.✨
If you would like to contribute, you can stop by while you’re in town and throw some change in the jar. There is also a GoFundMe set up for online donations that you can find here:https://www.gofundme.com/the-frost-place-pennies-for-poetry

For November's Penny Jar, we are collecting donations for Jim Caterino's family and funeral costs after his recent passing. Jim Caterino was an active member of the local community. Not only was he a coach to numerous children over the years, but a husband of 15 years to his wife, Kelly, and father of his 7th grader son, Kenny. He passed away on October 26th, unexpectedly, leaving his family and community at a loss.
For those interested in helping, we are welcoming people to donate to the Caterino family in the penny jar (found at our front counter) whilst you're shopping in our store.
For alternate contributions, there is a gofundme site set up so that you can donate online through the following link: gf.me/u/m9j7jt. You can also stop by a Passumpsic Bank and let the teller know you'd like to deposit into the "Kelly Caterino Fund" that has been set up for the Caterino family.
