Save the Date – Puyallup Rainiers
August 24th is the last fireworks Friday at the Tacoma Rainiers. It’s also Puyallup Night at the Rainiers. Ten dollars will get you into the game (Rainiers vs. Las Vegas), a hotdog and a drink. To order your tickets, call 253-722-2085 with the code word WISCONSIN. We hear it is PLU night too and they’re trying to get 1200 PLU supporters, alumni and current students to come out to the ball park. Let’s see if we can get a bunch of folks from Puyallup to come out too.
Superheroes at Storytime at the Puyallup Public Library
Well, maybe not exactly a superhero – but a police officer can be the next best thing. Is your preschooler fascinated by police officers? Here’s a chance to get “up close and personal” when a real Puyallup police officer joins Puyallup Public Library’s preschool storytime on Friday, July 20 at 10 am to read and talk with kids. This special storytime event at the Puyallup Public Library (324 S. Meridian, in downtown Puyallup) is intended for children 3-5 years old. No registration required. Come join the fun!
Wolf Haven comes to the Puyallup Public Library
Come have a howling good time at your favorite library! The folks from Wolf Haven International will be at the Puyallup Public Library (324 S. Meridian, in downtown Puyallup) to educate children about wolves on Friday, July 20.
All animals have a habitat. At 1 pm, children in grades kindergarten through grade 2 will experience Den Digs. They will learn about the four components of wolf habitat: food, water, shelter, and space, through hands-on activities. Then they will take part in a friendly game, to survive the challenges of wolves in the wild.
What’s on the menu? At 3:30, children in grades 3 through 6, will take part in Wolf Café. Children will learn how the wolf has adapted to its role as a key predator. They will study how the roles of predator/prey species are determined by their adaptations and survival strategy. More learning will take place as they examine skulls, antlers, and horns.
The mission of Wolf Haven International is to “Conserve and protect wolves and their habitat.” Wolf Haven accomplishes its mission through providing sanctuary, education and conservation. They are a nonprofit organization that has worked for wolf conservation since 1982. They rescue and provide sanctuary for displaced, captive-born wolves, promote wolf restoration in historic ranges and educate the public about the value of all wildlife. For more information about this organization visit http://www.wolfhaven.org.
No live wolves will be coming to the Puyallup Public Library, but the children who attend will still learn lots about these mysterious and wonderful animals. No registration required at this FREE library event.
This special library event is part of the “Dream Big – Read!” summer reading program for children. Designed to keep young people reading during the long hot days of summer, the summer reading program at the Puyallup Public Library offers fun incentives to help children maintain their reading skills. All children who spend time reading, listening to an audio book, or being read to, can enter drawings for great prizes. Plus, every child who reads (or is read to) at least 10 hours this summer will get a FREE book and a ticket to Northwest Trek/Pt. Defiance Zoo & Aquarium, as well as free goodies at local retailers. The 2012 summer reading program runs June 25 through August 11. It is generously funded by the Friends of the Puyallup Library and many local businesses.
