WRITERS’ GROUP NEWSLETTER August, 2016 D. Bradley
Although a small group gathered around the table this month, we had an enjoyable afternoon. We began with a piece from a member who was unable to attend, but sent a poem for us to read.

Thanks so much for everyone’s contributions! I think everyone left smiling. The goodies went quickly, and there were lots of books sold. All go to benefit your library.
There’s a great book sale and bake sale happening on August 6 – this Saturday and Sunday- from 10 am until 2 pm. Reflexology on Sunday as an added bonus! So, go to the Farmer’s Market in front of the school, stop at the library and check out the book sale at the town hall. Get there early to get the best goodies!
Next week, kids and their care givers are invited to the theater to see “Miracle” at 10 am on Tuesday as part of the library summer reading program. The “BFG” will be playing that night at 7:30! We didn’t finish our read aloud, but can’t wait to see the movie. The final Wednesday evening program will be held August 3, “On your mark, get set, SURVIVE!”, 7:00, all are welcome to collect their summer reading prizes.
