Fairy Houses

Drop off dates are Saturday, Oct 17th and 24th, 11am-12pm  : Sign up now to participate in Yew Dell’s Fall Fairy Forest Display.  Participants are invited to make Fairy Houses out of gourds and other natural materials (unfortunately we learned last year that pumpkins aren’t the best for our Fairy House display).  Houses should be made off-site and must be delivered to Yew Dell on the sign up date selected. Once your troop signs up, I will send further instructions.  Click here to sign up.  (When signing up, if you are part of a scout troop or group, please provide the group leader’s name and troop # in the “Participant Name” field. Provide the number of houses being built in “#of spots” field.)
