Rockville – Donna-Jo Webster

July 28, 2016

Hello, everybody! How are you holding up in the heat? Honey child, it’s so hot out, I put a bucket down the well and pulled up a pot of steam. I went to the store to buy a loaf of bread and brought home a loaf of toast. I even saw a car stopped at a traffic light with partially melted tires. Now that’s hot!
A cool breeze would be welcome and a big help to all the local folks blowing out birthday candles this week. Among them are Tammy Trapani and Junie West of our town, both opening presents on Aug. 3.
Ever had a hankering to feed and fellowship with over 4,000 people at once? Join The Giving Heart for their one-and-only informational meeting on Saturday, Aug. 6, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. and learn how you can take part in the huge Community Thanksgiving Feast.
Volunteers of all sorts are needed to make this annual event a huge success. Most of the need is in the days leading up to Thanksgiving (and, of course, the big day itself) but numerous opportunities aside from this time frame are available. For more info, contact Vicki Neilson at (804) 749-4726.
The Cochrane Rockville Library welcomes the Hampstead Stage Company and their live production of “Aladdin” Saturday, July 30, at 11 a.m. See the beloved story of the boy who defies the odds and follows his dreams. It’s great free fun for the entire family!
First Friday Films plays the library Friday, Aug. 5, at 4:30 p.m. Catch a full-length family film on the branch’s big screen. Enjoy free popcorn, snacks and soft drinks, too, courtesy of the Friends of the Rockville Library. Call (804) 749-3146 for the film’s title.
Dress up as your favorite Harry Potter character and celebrate the launch of the latest book in the popular series at the library Saturday, Aug. 6, at 11 a.m. Hear excerpts from “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” and make a cool Potter-themed craft, too.
