Just to give you an idea of what’s coming up in September: At Middletown we are having a celebration of all things Doctor Who on September 30 at 4 pm where you can come dressed up as your favorite Doctor, Companion or Villain for the costume contest and show up how knowledgeable you are about our favorite Gallifreyen with the trivia contest! Middletown will also have a Digital Cartooning program on September 25th at 4 pm. Also keep an eye out for Teen Tuesdays at Iroquois at 3:30 with DIY tech for comics, microcomputers, coding and app making. Fairdale has Tabletop Roleplaying gaming on Tuesdays at 4 pm.
