Speaker: Ken Gross is the Program Director of the Camden Library, and spoke about their Maker Faire. From their website: “Makers of all types will converge in Camden for a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness – a celebration of the Maker movement. Exhibitors/Makers do not pay for a booth and admission is free. This is not an art show or a science fair. It’s an event for people who make things to share them with the community, to celebrate the process of making and learning.” The faire is 11am-3pm on Saturday September 7th.

From your Spiritual Aims committee: ““A baby is God's opinion that life should go on. Never will a time come when the most marvelous recent invention is as marvelous as a newborn baby. The finest of our precision watches, the most super-colossal of our supercargo planes don't compare with a newborn baby in the number and ingenuity of coils and springs, in the flow and change of chemical solutions, in timing devises and interrelated parts that are irreplaceable.” ~Carl Sandburg
