If you enjoyed reading to your own kids, and have 2 hours a week to spare, Read Aloud Delaware needs you. Read one-on-one to at risk pre-school kids and give these young ones a love of reading and books for life. They love it and you will too.
If you haven't been downtown in a while, we'd like to invite you to check out the Mispillion Art League. MAL moved into the renovated historic building at 5 North Walnut Street in December to an enormously positive response from the community. Currently - until Saturday in fact - you can view the stunning Delaware Watercolor Society Show that includes MAL member work. A new exhibit will be going up this weekend - "A Bounty of Art" - the Fall Member Art Show and will include works in all media, both Fine Art and Fine Craft. An opening reception will be held October 15, 5-8pm. This event is free of charge and the public is welcome. Come out and meet your artist neighbors!
The Third Annual Walls Walk for Charity is set for Sunday, October 3. Events will begin with registration at 1 p.m. in Bicentennial Park and the actual “walk” kicking off at 2 p.m. Runners and walkers along with those in strollers, wheel chairs and scooters will follow the Mispillion Greenway Trail. Pets on leashes are welcome. Offering an opportunity to pursue fun and fitness, the course covers the entire trail along the river from Maple Avenue to Goat Island. This year, for the first time, participants will get an opportunity to walk on a primitive nature trail on Goat Island. Because the island trail is still in the planning stages, this chance for an early, close-up look will be available that day only.
All participants will return to the kick-off point to enjoy free food and music plus games, a juggler, balloon art, face painting and a moon bounce for kids. The cost is $10 for adults and $7 for senior citizens and students. Children 12 and under can participate free of charge. All proceeds will benefit Youth Programs at Milford Parks and Recreation.
Please see the attached flyer & registration form.
