Oh Say, Did You See?

IMG_20150702_180754[1]We are very thankful, and proudly hail, the new flag that was generously and sincerely gifted by Mr. Bob (Robert) Turner recently after he observed the rather tattered condition of the former starry banner; such a timely act that we wish to recognize.
As should be expected, the library will be CLOSED on Saturday, July 4th — enjoy the holiday!
O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
 Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!
 Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
 Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
 Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
 And this be our motto - “In God is our trust,” 
 And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
 O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

— from the Star-Spangled Banner, by Francis Scott Key, 1814, verse 4

Schamaling’s “Amazing Race” Approaches

raceFulton’s Amazing Race is fast approaching and we are eagerly looking forward to this annual fun-filled family event scheduled for next Tuesday, July 14th, at 5:45pm.  Join us for some friendly, yet serious, competition for all ages as you and your team race throughout downtown Fulton working together to complete a scavenger hunt.  We are stepping up the difficulty this year folks, so come with fresh minds and fast feet!  Teams need to include at least one adult and family members (extended family works too);  the necessary registration forms are available now at the library — they should be available Thursday, July 9th at Summer Nights as well.   And as always, we will be awarding prizes to 1st – 3rd place winners and providing pizza after the race!
