Text of Bunny Hop at Children¢â‚¬â„¢s Library - Island Bunny Hop at...

  • While many choose to spend the Easter weekend with family or friends, there were quite a few children’s activities going on as well. Megan, one of the librarians at The Children’s Library, was able to tell us about The Bunny Hop at the Chil- dren’s Library on Saturday.

    Kids who attended the Bunny Hop put their searching skills to the test looking for eggs hid- den throughout the library. Once all the eggs were found, the kids got down to business sorting through the letters hidden inside to reveal the hol- iday words! After a quick search for a few missing letters (including a well-hidden ‘G’) the kids tried out the other games and activities, including deco- rating an egg that had a chick pop out of it! Thank

    you to everyone who came out to have some Easter fun at the Children’s Library!

    With spring finally “really” here, many of us are eager- ly awaiting summer, as the weather continues there is plenty more happening at The Children’s Library :

    On Tuesday May 6th the library will be hosting story- teller Leigh-Anne Kehler as part of the TD Children’s Book Week Tour! We encourage both kids and adults to come out and enjoy this experience as Leigh-Anne uses folktales from around the world to tell her stories! The annual Tea and Fashion Show will be held in the Richards Landing Town Hall to support the Children’s Library on Saturday, May 11th. Tickets to this delight- ful afternoon are available now at Moose Sweats!

    The Children’s Library will once again be collecting clothing and soft goods at Kent’s Corner. We’re collect- ing everything from clothes, linens, bedding, luggage, hats, boots and belts. At the end of the collection the entire stack of goods will be weighed and the library will

    receive a corresponding donation! What a great way to keep our unwanted items out the landfills and help the library at the same time!

    The “Get Caught Reading” Program will return to the Children’s Library in May. Children who are ‘caught reading’ by the librarian at the library will receive a ballot for prizes in the final draw at the end of the month. Last year more than 100 ballots were dropped into the ballot box by readers who quietly showed off their library skills by either reading independently or to others! We hope to pass that number this year as we pass out ballots for the grand prize of a Coles gift card! Good luck and happy reading!

    THERE’S NOTHING TO DO HERE submitted by Jody Wildman

    We sometimes read on social media, or hear people comment that there is nothing to do in our community. “Why doesn’t the Township do something about it? What ever happened to this annual event or that activity...?”

    You may not realise it, but there are a lot of ac- tivities and events for various age groups, in most cases run by small groups of dedicated volunteers. Activities such as concert series and art shows, sports and seniors’ programming, and newer an- nual events such as the Go North Music Festival. That doesn’t mean there is something that specifi- cally interests you or your family and friends, but there are always opportunities to help make new things happen. However, if you want your munic- ipality to help, we need to hear from you.

    If you have ever thought there should be more to do on St. Joseph Island, come the this month’s Mayor’s meeting on Monday April 29th at 7pm at the municipal office at 1669 Arthur Street, Rich- ards Landing. Mayor Jody Wildman would like to hear your concerns and discuss your ideas.

    The 49th Annual Maple Syrup Festival Continues This Weekend!

    THIS COMING WEEKEND, April 9 and 10, the Royal Cana- dian Legion Branch 374 on St. Joseph Island will again be hosting the 49th Annual Maple Syrup Festival in Richards Landing.

    Every year, the festival serves thousands of “all you can eat” pancakes and sausages topped with sticky and sweet St. Joseph Island maple syrup to residents from Wawa to Sud- bury and everywhere in between. This treat is available for just $9/adult, $8/senior, and $5/child under 12. The 2016 fes- tival includes many of the usual features including local Maple Syrup Producer booths with a variety of syrups, can- dies and sugars. Craft vendors and local organization infor- mation tables are favourites with the regular patrons. The yearly $1000 prize raffle tickets will also be for sale.

    This year, the festival is privileged to include a few special guests: Central Algoma Secondary School’s History Club, the 49th Field Regiment, RCA and Sault Ste. Marie & Algoma District CUPE Council. The History Club will be selling “trench cakes.” Funds raised will be donated to the Vimy Ridge Foundation. April 9th is Vimy Ridge Day but dona- tions will be accepted up until May 31st.
