Please feel free to come dressed in attire suitable for a soiree at Highclere Castle and enjoy a sneak peek into Season 4 of Downton Abbey from KCTS9.

FILM SCREENING: THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER
Check out the Seattle Public Library’s screening of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.” There will be trivia, snacks and free books, so bring your friends and make a day of it!
The film is based on the critically-acclaimed book by Stephen Chbosky, who also directs the movie. High school freshman Charlie watches life from the sidelines until a pair of charismatic seniors takes him under their wing. Beautiful, free-spirited Sam and her fearless stepbrother Patrick shepherd Charlie through new friendships, first love, burgeoning sexuality, bacchanalian parties, midnight screenings of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” and the quest for the perfect song. Rated PG-13.
SATURDAY, Dec 21 9am-12pm
Join other enthusiastic volunteers for a fun morning of forest restoration and trails maintenance. There will be a wide variety of tasks with which you you can help. STARS provides gloves and water (you are encouraged to bring your own bottle of water, to reduce plastic waste). Please wear sturdy shoes. Suitable for teens and older. Follow the STARS signs to the meeting place.
