Looking for something to do with your kids or grandkids? Come to the beach at Timmy Patten Park in Wilmot on Thursday, July 12 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Children are invited to build houses for their favorite fairies or gnomes. The program is free and open to all.
Fun with Fairies & Gnomes is co-sponsored by the WCA and the Wilmot Public Library (WPL). “We joined forces to begin this new tradition last year. It was great fun. The houses were amazing,” says Mary Kulacz, co-chair, from Wilmot. She adds, “Construction materials will be provided and children are encouraged to bring their wings and magic wands. Families are welcome to bring bathing suits and picnics and enjoy the beach before and after construction.”
The WPL kicks off The Library Rocks Summer Reading Program on July 5. Michelle Travis, library director, says, “We’ll be getting in the mood for fairy and gnome houses with a fairy story at 6:15 p.m. on July 5. In addition, children are encouraged to bring rocks to paint for their houses. Children can bring more than one rock but they shouldn’t be larger than an adult fist.
Timmy Patten Park is located on Shindagan Road on Tannery Pond. Along with the beach, there is a playground, picnic tables and a grill.
