BOBBIE MAPPIN & SEAN HIGGINS
The Royal Tea was a giant success! We were in the glorious company of more than 85 of Stettler’s most elegant ladies and dashing gentlemen. Fabulous fascinators were made, competitive croquet was played, and most importantly, terrific tea was drunk. Everyone was in merry spirits. The event was a perfect example of how people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds can all come together. The library is truly a community centre for all people to come to.
The school visits were a lot of fun. We got to introduce ourselves to everyone and give a sample of the summer’s activities. If you have lost any of the sheets that we handed out, you can find them at our website or come in and grab a new one. Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook at ‘Stettler Summer Reading Program 2011’ to stay updated.
We also have put up a huge bulletin board outside of the library detailing our summer schedule. Every week it will be updated so everyone can see which activities they would like to come to. Our fi rst week is surf-themed. We have lots of awesome things planned, from tie-dying t-shirts and making seed bombs with teens, to crafting leis and hula hooping with kids.
One of the first big events coming up for the ‘Splash’ Summer Reading Program is the visit of Donna Durand, a folk, roots, and acoustic musician. On July 15 we invite everyone to come to the library at 2:00pm to listen and enjoy a free concert. You can learn more about Donna at http://www.reverbnation.com/donnadurand. We’re really excited to have her coming out!
