Take a time-out from weekend chores and bring your scrapbooking project and supplies to the Peabody Institute Library, 82 Main St., for a scrapbooking lab from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The drop-in program is open to scrapbookers who wish to work on their own independent projects and be inspired by the friendship and ideas of others.

St. Peter's Church is hosting a Be the Match bone marrow donor registration drive from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at 4 Ocean St. in Beverly. Representatives from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute will be at the church to sign up potential bone marrow donors for the registry of the National Bone Marrow Donor Program. Registrants must be between ages 18 and 44, meet health guidelines, and willing to donate to any patient for whom he or she is a match. No blood is drawn at registration, but participants will be asked to swab the inside of their cheek to collect cells for testing. Registrants are asked to bring their insurance cards, because many insurance plans in Massachusetts cover the testing. All those who register will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a gift certificate from Atomic Café in Beverly. St. Peter’s is hoping to recruit a minimum of 150 bone marrow registrants in honor of the church's 150th anniversary. For information about the Be the Match program, visit
