Rockville – Donna-Jo Webster

February 9, 2017

Hello, everybody! Happy middle-of-the-month to you all. Just think: by the time these words are printed, we’ll have less than 45 days to go until spring arrives. That deserves three cheers and a chocolate bunny or two!
Three more cheers go out to the local folks celebrating their birthdays this week. Among them are Greg Kiwak, opening presents on Feb. 10 and David Hinton, playing a celebratory bagpipe tune on Feb. 12.
Feeling lucky? Join the Rockville Ruritans for Bingo Night this Friday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m. at the Rockville Center on Pouncey Tract Road. Sixteen fun-filled games cost just $20 with a payout of $25 per game. Food will be available for purchase, so bring your appetites, too. For more info, call (804) 263-4896.
The Cochrane Rockville Library is the place to be for great programs the whole family can enjoy. This Saturday, Feb. 11, the library serves up food fun with their Vegetable Printmaking Workshop at 11 a.m. for kids ages 5 to 10. Create unique works of art using veggies as giant stamps! Snacks will be served, too, courtesy of the Friends of the Rockville Library.
“Paws” to catch the library’s next Read2Rover event on Thursday, Feb. 16, at 4:30 p.m. Certified therapy dogs will be on hand to provide comfort and motivation to beginning readers, boosting confidence and building read-aloud skills. Call the library at (804) 749-3146 to reserve your child’s spot today.
The library celebrates March’s Youth Art Month with an opening reception on Friday, Feb. 24, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Feast your eyes on the fabulous student artwork from South Anna Elementary and Liberty Middle schools, plus enjoy complimentary refreshments and more.
