So much to do, I want to get this to you ASAP!
When traveling to the Island at this time of year, count on a lot to do! (Kim West Photo)
Activities start right off on Monday when Emily Sena, granddaughter of Islander Connie Sena, will speak on her recent experiences during a semester in the Middle East. Emily will be a Senior when she returns to school at Luther College, Decorah, Iowa. She is eager to present and welcomes your questions.
If the packed ticket jars are any evidence, the Art & Nature Center had a successful day with "Art in the Park" over the weekend!
Naturalist Steve Waldron looks happy too. This week continues to be packed with activities @ the ANC. Hikes, a star party, and a 3 day class on "The Science of Art" (presented by Steve Schmidt) to name a few on the Nature side. See the Observer for more info.
Family Pioneer Wednesdays continue at the Farm Museum. This week, make a newspaper kite - 1 to 3pm Oh! The other big activity for the Farm Museum is their Home Tour set for this Friday.
The tour will feature: Fragrant Isle, the Stevens, Westbrook, Stolz, and DeWitt homes. This is their big fundraiser held every two years. Advance tickets may be purchased at the Red Cup, Recreation Center, or Fiddler's Green or at the Farm Museum on Friday. The Tour runs from 10 to 4.
Friday night, out at the Red Barn, Joan Reynolds returns with her Island Sunshine Singers. A selection of standards arranged by Joan in 3 & 4 part harmony, a solo by Cindra, and a rag played by Joan make this evening a special one for sure!
Saturday, the fun continues at the American Legion 61st Annual Fly-In Fish Boil...yes, at the Airport ... 11 to 1. A hay ride, crafts, and music attracts as any as 150 airplanes to the grass runways here.
In the evening, jazz will be on tap as the TPAC welcomes the Birch Creek Ambassadors ...note a special time for this performance - 5:00pm.
While there is plenty to do...there remains the possibility of finding your own way to make this week on the Island memorable.
til next time!
