For this very special event we are partnering with the Virginia Lovers’ Gourd Society

http://vlgs.org/gourd-patches.html

 

The society has provided large dried gourds that will be available for participants to decorate.

They are also offering an opportunity for any participant to enter their gourd creation into the gourd show to be held in Winchester, VA on Nov. 16th & 17th and they will waive the normal entry fee.

The library will transfer or ship the gourds to the show and then return to the library branch where they were created afterwards.

To assist in tracking the gourds submitted to the show, a form is required
