Florence County Library Candle making workshop at library
The Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation Library will be holding a candle making workshop led by Scented Hug on Tuesday, Feb. 21 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Stukes Meeting Room.
Participants will learn how to blend fragrances, use a wood wick, and ultimately make a candle to take home.
Scented Hug sells premium soy wax candles with wood wicks. The owners, Lacie and Saran Jones, created Scented Hug during the COVID-19 pandemic as a way for people to share the warmth of a hug with those they love and care about while being apart.
Participation is free, but space is limited and registration is required for this adult program.
Vegan food truck visits
The Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation Library will host Eliza’s Vegan Café Food Truck, outside in the parking lot on Tuesday, Feb. 7 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
