3rd Extravaganza

Our next extravaganza is going to be next Tuesday.  Be sure to turn in your 3rd game card by 6 p.m. before Monday, July 29.  Don't forget that Godeke, Groves, & Patterson do not open until noon on Monday and Tuesday. 

For those who receive a pass to the 3rd extravaganza, we will start collecting passes at 4 p.m. (the doors will not open until 4 p.m.) and we have to be out of the building by 6:45 p.m.  We are not allowed to stay past 6:45 so make sure to tell the person who will pick you up that they will need to be there no later than 6:45.

We will have the drawing for prizes after 5 p.m. 

You can bring your own skates, inline skates, things with wheels (scooters...).  If you do not have anything like that just bring yourself (don't forget socks :) and they will have something for you.

There may be space for friends and family members to be able to skate too.  Each friend/family member who wants to skate will need to bring $3 and pay at the door after all library teens who have a pass get skates.  It may be after 4:15 before guests will be able to get their skates.

There is a small room in the back that people who do not want to skate can hang out in.  Only those who skate are allowed in the skating area (per management).

We will be providing refreshments for the teens and they can only be in the small room in the back.  So if you can RSVP to this blog or email mahonps@gmail.com with your first name that would be great to make sure to have enough refreshments. 

See you next Tuesday.
