LARNED — The Jordaan Memorial Library special reading program at 1:30 p.m. today at the Larned Community Center is being presented by the Kansas Cosmosphere in support of this year’s summer reading theme, “Fizz, Boom, Read.”
The group will meet for this one program at the Larned Community Center because of our need for additional space.
Especially designed to heighten your child’s curiosity in science and engineering, be ready to be entertained with a program on rocketry.
• LIFE STORY WRITING — It’s not too late for the adults of our community to sign-up for the Life-Story Writing workshop which will be presented by Charley Kempthorne of the LifeStory Writing Institute.
