Free music concert draws large group at library – Literally Yours

Successful concert - Bobbie Mappin

By Bobbie Mappin & Sean Higgins

Hey people!

The free concert we hosted on Friday with folk & roots musician Donna Durand was a huge hit.

Donna and her ‘banjo man’, Gary, entertained a group of over 50 music lovers with her gorgeous prairie-flavoured tunes, and talked about song-writing, while we all had a refreshing glass of iced tea.

Our Wednesday morning programs at the Rochon Sands Community Hall have been great so far – we bring out some crafts, games, and stories at 10:00 a.m., so if you are camping or staying out at Buffalo Lake, drop by!

We are still having such a fun time with our programs. Don’t forget, all our activities are free and drop-in. To see a schedule of activities, drop by, or check the ‘kids’ link at our website.

Tomorrow, we are making face-paint pirate tattoos. At 12:00 p.m. for 5 to 8-year-olds, and at 2:00 p.m. for 9 to 12-year-olds. It is going to be very cool and very pirate-y, so start thinking of what kind of tough-looking tattoo you want to get!

On Friday, it is officially Pirate Day at the library. Please come in your best pirate gear, because we don’t want any landlubbers in here. We are going to have lots of games and (spoiler alert!) a piñata! Everyone is welcome to come out at 11:00 a.m. for this.

Also coming up on Tuesday, July 19, we are showing The Karate Kid for our family movie madness! Bring your moms and dads and lots of popcorn and snuggle in at 6:00 p.m. to watch it.

Tomorrow, we are going to watch the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie at 6:00 p.m. and all teens are welcome to come! Bring your own snacks.
