Join us each month for some geocaching fun! Geocaching is like a modern day treasure hunt, but instead of 'X' marks the spot you read the coordinates. We will be using a combination of geocaching.com, munzie.com and some old fashioned map reading. Geocaching is enjoyed by people all over the world and is a great way to get outdoors and possibly meet some new people. Always remember to sign the log and if you take something, leave something!! Curious to know more? Then join us once a month.

Looking For Alaska tells the story of friends who go to a private school. They drink, smoke, and do other things they shouldn't. The book builds up to a tragic event, and later shows how the characters deal with it.
