John Canevari conducted an Olive Oil and Vinegar tasting seminar on Tuesday, June 30th to an enthusiastic audience. Many lucky people were able to taste and learn how to prepare a delicious Cilantro-Lime Marinade, Mango Salsa, Mediterranean Pasta Salad and Blue Olive Pesto. We thank you, our neighbors at the Blue Olive, for an immensely enjoyable presentation, and we look forward to your return.
Children’s Summer Programs open Monday, July 6th and we are busy getting ready for our heroic summer! Registration confirmation sheets are ready and waiting for you to pick up or call in for the list of programs your children will attend here this summer. Please remember that you must confirm your registration before our July 6th opening week.
For families who have not yet registered, there are still slots available in many of our programs, especially in our morning “library camp” programs. Please feel free to stop by or give us a call and we’ll check on availability of your favorites. Registration is now on a first come-first serve basis so give us a call as soon as possible. We look forward to hearing from you!
Reading logs are now open, so remember to take a look at our new on-line book logsand consider using them to keep your children reading this summer. The cool Superhero theme is exciting and motivating for children and many of the families who have switched from paper logs to our e-logs have been very pleased with them so far. If you have any questions about which log to use or any assistance in signing up, please feel free to call. I’m happy to answer your questions and help your children get started logging their titles!
We look forward to seeing everyone starting July 6th!
