Oceans of Possibilities
Updated: Jul 19
Oceans of Possibilities -- what a great theme! That's the theme of this year's Summer Quest program. The children's program, ages 2-11, has featured ocean-themed stories and crafts. Today each preschool child made an octopus, while each early elementary school age kid made an "ocean in a bottle" and each youth age 9-11 made a flying fish. And those fish really flew!
The fun continues next Friday, July 22 at 10 a.m. at the Paul Fuller Playground & Pavilion. There's a rumor a pirate has been spotted . . .
There are reading challenges for teens and adults, too. Each offers the opportunity to read and earn entries into prize drawings. For the adults, it's a weekly drawing; for the teens, the prize drawing will be at a pizza party August 5 at 6 p.m. (Winners need not be present to win.)
In late June, prior to the start of our Summer Quest program, we held a three-morning Electronics and Robotics Camp, which was fun and educational for all.
A Video Game Design Camp will be held Monday through Friday, July 25-29, between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. See our website's "Programs" page for more information.
Finally, our Book Discussion group will be meeting on Thursday, July 30 at 7 p.m. to discuss the book "Small-Time" by Russell Shorto. He traces the story of his grandfather, who was second-in-command of the mob in Johnstown in the mid-20th Century. (His great-uncle ran the operation!) We still have copies available to sign out!
