Library News from Linda: The summer reading program begins the second week of June. We will be meeting on Thursdays at 4pm. Enrollment is open to children 3 to 14. Sign-up begins the first week of May. The theme this year is "Ready Set Read". We have many fun activities planned. It will be an active summer. Also, attendance at the library has been great! We had 497 people visit last month.
RAGBRAI meeting was held on April 23rd. Committees are being formed to organize for the event. The City will have an ordinance in place that will prohibit sales of any sort without a city permit. For local organizations, we have two options for fundraising: 1) Pay for a local permit - $200 and we will reserve a booth on Main Street for you, (vendor forms available at City Hall), OR, 2) The City will have a stand that organizations can band resources to meet each organizations goals. Linda Heywood will be heading up this Committee so you can get additional information by contacting her or me. There will be additional RAGBRAI meetings coming up. Please watch the Boar's Nest where I will post the meeting dates, times & locations. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO VOLUNTEER TO HELP IN ANY WAY, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!
Park Update: As many people have already noticed the playground structure has arrived and is in the process of being constructed. If you have not been by the park lately I encourage you to drive by and look. Since it is still under construction we do ask that you do not go down by it or even get on what is put together as it is not secure and could cause injuries. It is anticipated that it will be complete and ready for children to play on by the first weekend in May!!! A special thank you for the following people that have helped put the structure up in the rain and mud: Gary Farwell, Brian Hardy, Al Marshall, Carl Focht, Monty McConahay, Claude Perkins, Rick French, Dave Heywood, Brendon Hardy, Randy Foster, Dave Earlywine, Erin Vanatta, and Lindsey Carter for taking pictures. Also to those that took lunch and snacks to the workers, Shantelle Earlywine and Sherry Perkins. Without all the community help this would not be possible. Never under estimate the power of idea and will to accomplish that idea!! Thank you Randolph for making this happen!!
