St. Patrick's Day has hit Scrapbook Generation in a special way! Today, among other things, we're hosting a crop for a group from the Springfield Boys and Girls Town. There are five gals and guys here ready to scrapbook the day away. They are joined by Lori Davis, who works at the facility, and by Trish Click, who volunteers her time there, and has interested the kids in her favorite hobby.

Trish and Lori are regulars at our Midnight Madness crops on Fridays, and they stayed past midnight last night, decorating for today's crop and getting things just right for the teens. Later in the day, they are going to be taking the Scrapbooking 101 class, and the rest of the time, just having a little fun, the scrapbooking way.

We had met most of the kids before today. They had dropped in to check us out a few weeks ago, and they were full of enthusiasm about coming back to scrapbook.

For some people, our store is their home away from home, and we get to know what's going on in their lives. Getting to know Trish and Lori better has been a great experience for all of us around here. Karin and I both know what it takes to work with school-age children, and we admire and applaud the efforts Trish and Lori make at Boys and Girls Town.
