Just in time for Thanksgiving, a gratitude tree has sprung up in a corner of the Cloverdale Regional Library, 401 N. Cloverdale Blvd.
Children are being encouraged to write down something for which they are thankful on one of the colorful leaves and add it to the paper tree.
Already filling with leaves, the sentiments being left behind on the tree are as varied as the youngsters who leave them — from being thankful for life and having a house to living in Sonoma County.
The gratitude tree will remain at the Cloverdale Library throughout the month of November.

The Healdsburg Museum opens its annual holiday toy exhibition with “Model Trains Spectacular,” on Friday during the Downtown Holiday Party.
This year’s exhibit features model trains of diverse scales and types. The trains will be featured in vignettes such as a small town winter setting from the mid-1940s, including famous passenger trains, such as the Santa Fe El Capitan, Southern Pacific and Northwest Pacific freight trains, and including tank and box cars carrying wines from local wineries. The exhibit will prominently display replicas of the Healdsburg train depot and the Roma winery building.
Many of the trains come from the collection of Wayne Padd. Shirley Truitt’s three-quarter-scale replica of the steam locomotive the “California” will also be displayed. Truitt fabricated all the parts for the model, which is one-sixteenth of full-size.
The museum is located at 221 Matheson St. Hours are from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday. The museum will be open until 7 p.m. Friday.
Mary Lockwood’s mother not only allows her to paint on their backyard fence, she encourages it.
The 13-year-old’s first fence painting was of Mickey Mouse with a detailed background of roses. She later added a Pink Floyd panel for her dad’s birthday and one of poppies for her mom.
