Bookworm Schedule — June and Beyond!

Reading is fun!“Words – so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.”

– Nathaniel Hawthorne

We’re sad to say that we’re finished bookworming for this year… but that doesn’t mean no more reading and it doesn’t mean there won’t be lots going on!

Friday, June 7th Several bookworms will be at school to help celebrate Arts Alive! A fun-filled day for everyone!

Wednesday, June 12 is the last day of school!

Friday, June 21st Valley Grange meets to elect officers for the upcoming year (2013-2014).

Some other important dates throughout the summer:

Thursday, July 18th is the annual Pomona Grange Picnic and auction at the Boomsma’s! Janice and Walter will furnish hamburgs and hotdogs… bring a salad or dessert to share… Bill usually makes the beans! Arrive any time after 5 PM for some horseshoe pitching… bring lawn games… just sit and feed the mosquitoes…  the grill starts sizzling at 6 PM… and we have a short but fun auction (bring a few items to donate) beginning around 7 PM.  This is not just for Grangers!  Picnic is “potluck” — hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided by Janice and Walter… bring a salad or dessert! We usually wind up with the traditional marshmallow roast! This is not just for Grange members!

Saturday, July 20th there will be a really cool “Then and Now” fashion show at Valley Grange, sponsored by the DUV (Daughter of Union Veterans). You’ll see Civil War Era garments as well as contemporary fashions.  The show starts at  6:30 pm – advance sale tickets $8.00 each.  Refreshments available. Call Mary Annis at 564-0820 for more information or tickets. Tickets are also available at Label Shopper.

Saturday, July 27th is The Guilford River Festival… hope to see you there! (Students, you might run into a bookworm who will ask you how your summer reading is going…)
