Never a Dull Moment!

Jeff Armstrong shows the audience 
his boa constrictor during the library’s
most recent session of their

in The Lawrenceville High School auditorium, and
features The Madcap Puppets — “Once Upon a Clock.”

Out of Many, One

"You have to love a nation that celebrates
its independence every July 4th, not with
a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who
file by the White House in a show of
strength and muscle, but with family
picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the
potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die
from happiness.  You may think you
have overeaten, but it is patriotism."

                                                               ~Erma Bombeck

Yes, we're a part of a special community!
