Reel Reading Book Club: Tuesday, October 28 @ 5 p.m. — Join Rosedale's Reel Reading Book Club! Kids read a book and then on the last Tuesday of each month they watch the movie that the book inspired, or the movie that inspired the book. Kids can enjoy a brief group discussion as well! October's book selection is Roald Dahl’s BFG, which inspired a movie of the same name!

Mask Masking:  Friday, October 31 @ 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. — Children and tweens can make and take home a mask of their own for trick or treating! Varieties include robots, scarecrows, Frankenstein, black cats, and several types of princesses.
