Week 39

Children and their families enjoy checking out the various trucks on site during the Party in the Park event at the Historic Village on September 18th.

Happy first week of autumn everyone! The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today with a high of 70 degrees. Seems like a perfect morning to go for a jog around town in a hoodie or grab a warm cup of tea.

Last Week

Party in the Park was held in the Historical Village on Wednesday the 18th and the turn out was fantastic! Children enjoyed stories from readers from all over the Vicksburg area while munching on animal crackers and sipping juice. The event concluded with lots of trucks pulling up for all the kiddos to climb in and check out with their parents. A big shout out to Youth Librarian Stephanie who helped put on the event and all the readers who came in to lend a hand. We hope to see you all next year!

The new Gaming Group kicked off on Wednesday the 18th as well with classic card games. Participants enjoyed a couple rounds of Euchre, Crazy Eights, and Chase the Ace. The next Gaming Group will be Wednesday, October 16th at 6:00pm and will feature the board game Ticket to Ride. Come find out if you are the King of the Railroad as we play on boards featuring various countries!

Suicide affects millions of people in the world each day and it can be tough to handle for the loved ones who are left behind.

The next meeting will be Thursday the 26th at 6:00pm. Please note: This is a social support group. There will be no medical professionals present. That being said, all are welcome.
