Wand-makers Gather in Branford

Volunteers work hard to prepare for A Hogwarts Halloween at the Blackstone.

Recently volunteers gathered in Branford to prepare for A Hogwarts Halloween at the Blackstone.  Taking direction from the famous Ollivander, the apprentice wandmakers prepped 600 wands for the October 20th and 21st fundraisers to support children's programs at the Blackstone Library.

There's still a chance to win tickets (2 for the kids event or 1 for A Hint of Hogwarts if you're 21 or over) by entering the .  The contest ends August 31st.  There have been some great captions entered, but yours could be the best!

Mark your calendars for October 20th & 21st and let Ollivander assist the wand to find the wizard.  Tickets go on sale in September.

Hogwarts is part of the Harry Potter universe created by J.K. Rowling.
