Let's try this again

Since the libraries were closed for snow when we were suppose to have our book to movie marathon on December 19th, it is now rescheduled for the Monday after Christmas, December 28th, when you will be at home bored with nothing to do. There will be pizza and soda available but you can bring food along to share with the group. Also, if you want, bring a folding chair as it may be more comfortable than the plastic chairs. It will be held at the Grove Family Library from 12 - 4 pm. We will be watching Stardust & Coraline.

Something to look forward to

We are postponing the Benefit Concert on December 19th until sometime in 2010. We will let ya'll know as soon as a date is set. We will still have the movies that afternoon at Grove Family Library from 12 - 4 pm. Also look to the right and you can see what is being planned for January - March 2010. If you have an idea for future activities, please leave a comment. Or if you are adventurous, come to the next teen board meeting this Thursday, 6 pm at Coyle Free Library.

Its a Neil Gaimen type of day

We will be watching Stardust & Coraline at the Grove Family Library on December 19th from 12 - 4 pm. There will be plenty of popcorn, candy and soda. Should be a imaginatively good time.

We will, we will, ROCK YOU!

On December 19th, we will be hosting a benefit concert to raise funds for "The Board". "The Board" is a group of teens who get together twice a month to plan activities for other teens at the libraries. We are in need of money to provide bigger and better activities. The band that will be performing is Thy Sins, a classic rock band from Waynesboro. It will be held at the Grove Family Library from 7 - 8 pm. Tickets cost $5. Contact me at dbigham@fclspa.org if you are interested in a ticket.

Na Na Na Nanananaaa, Nanananaaa, Hey Jude

Come and play Beatles Rock Band this Saturday, November 21st from 2 - 4 pm at the Grove Family Library. Be Paul, John, Ringo or George, it's your choice. You can play like the rock star that you are.

Also, if you are so inclined, we will be collecting scarves, gloves, mittens, and caps to be donated to the Salvation Army at this event.

Come on ... I know you want to ...

make fun of Pee Wee's Big Adventure. Make all the wise cracks you want while watching the movie ... it's allowed. I know it is Homecoming for CASHS but who wants to sit out in the cold all evening. We'll have popcorn and hot chocolate (for free). What can be better than that? Nothing I can think of. So hope to see you on October 23rd at 6 pm. We will be upstairs of the Coyle Free Library.

Bring it!

Bring your water gun to Norlo Park in Fayetteville for a rousing game of capture the flag. We will be starting @ 2 pm. It is a guaranteed good time!

Dungeons & Dragons cont'd

Below is an email from April about getting ready for Dungeons & Dragons.

ok here is the d and d info u want:

Every person must chose a race for their character.

Halfling (hobbit)
Characters can be bi racial. Just remember to use common sense. Can't have a half Ogre half Gnome. Not really possible now is it?

Also each charcter must choose a class.

Ranger (Aragorn)
Cleric (Divine magic user)
Paladin (Holy Crusader)

Don't think I missed anything. Let me know who wants what kind of character and they must choose a name also.

Email me soon with your choices so I can forward it all to the guy so he can roll up your numbers needed for the game.

You can email me (Denice) at dbigham@fclspa.org with the info and I will forward it on to April.

Dungeons & Dragons Game Night

Where: upstairs in the Coyle Free Library
When: April 23rd from 4:30 - 8 pm
Who: Any teens who want to play. We will teach you how if you have never played Dungeons and Dragons before.


"The Board" will be meeting this Thursday at 6 pm at Coyle Free Library. I got the notes from last meeting and it looks like a lot of decisions were made. Of course there will be pizza and soda provided.

We got a new look

I get tired of how a blog looks quickly so decided what would be a little more splashy. So here it is. Hope you like.

That is sooo funny!

Come to the Grove Family Library the evening of March 6th for some improv games. And don't worry there will be food and drink.

We meet again ...

Our next meeting will be next Thursday (Feb. 12) at 6 pm at Coyle (hope this doesn’t cause confusion but the room is now available earlier). We will need to figure out the last pieces of the Anti-Valentine’s Day party and make sure the movie is ready to go. Also we will have a guest to discuss a video contest. Don’t forget that we have a party on Feb. 14th from 2 – 4 pm at Coyle and an improv night on March 6th from 5:30 – 8 pm at Grove. There is also a chance to partner with some local bands when they perform at the Capitol Theater in April (hopefully I will have more information by next week). Look forward to seeing ya next week.

What becomes of the broken hearted?

No loved one to spend time with on Valentine's Day? Come to our Anti-Valentine's Day Party.

We will be watching a anti-valentine videos and playing anti-valentine games.

No love involved.
