Cool Activities for Guys This Summer

Yes, there is some fun stuff coming up this summer, but first let us express our sympathies to one of our most faithful reader guys, cyber kid 303. He lost his grandfather yesterday and we know that must be tough. Our sincere thoughts and sympathies are with you.

As I said, we have some very cool activities lined up this summer. The first one will be the second meeting of the City of Ember Boys Bookclub this Saturday, June 6, at 2:00 pm here at Imaginon. We'll have some activities, snacks, and talk about The People of Sparks, the second book in the City of Ember series. Call 704-973-2720 to register. (You have to read the book first)

The next one will be the Last Olympian Party here in The Round at Imaginon on Thursday, June 18 at 2:00 pm. We’ll have some games, some discussion of The last Olympian, and a lot of fun! Come in costume!

Then we'll have (big drum roll, please) our first ever--

That's right!! Master Jedi Zack, Darth Bill, and I, the CARLMAN who brings balance to the Force, will host one-hour camps here at Matthews and Imaginon. Here are the times and dates:

Grand Finale for all campers—Thursday, July 30 at 2:00 PM, Imaginon Library (this one will be from 2:00--5:00 pm. We'll have lots of fun stuff that day and-hopefully-show the Clone Wars movie!)
