It's that time again...

Well, another Summer Reading Program come and almost gone!  We'll have the Endo of SRP Picnic Thursday, the 6th of August, from Noon to about 3:30 at Roberts Park.  Come enjoy the picnic - we'll have hotdogs and corn, along with some salads to eat!  I'll have bottled water and juice or milk!

The picnic also features the 4H of Waushara county performijng a STEAM project with the kids!  We'll have the picnic lunch first, then after everyone is done, we'll draw some names for a special prize (8 winners!), and then the kids will go over and create some dessert parfaits with the 4H!!!

We are proud to be a part of this year's summer Maker Camp!  Watch this page and our Facebook page The Patterson's Facebook Page for events - we are a tad behind, because I wasn't sure if we were selected, but we have been!  I just need a good time to hold camps...  any ideas? Contact Mr. Kent!

Beautiful wildlife and landscapes are Helen Myhre Reyes' favorite subjects, and her work does not disappoint!  Her use of color, light and shading all work to bring the viewer into the picture, as if one were a part of the scene.  Her work has the depth of the renaissance artists, inviting us to enter the world oif her subjects - her world.  Helen's paintings are haunting images  - beckoning us closer.  Detail is marvelous! 

The artists' statement:  "I am self taught, no formal training and I work in oil paint, acrylics, water color, pastels, pen & ink and also pencil sketching.  My home town is Viroqua, WI  but I currently live here in Wild Rose.  I hope you enjoy my work!" -  Helen Myhre Reyes

Helens work will be on diplay the month of June.  She is one artist who is not to be missed!

Mr. Kent's Storytime is held each wednesday at 10:30am.  We read books, sing songs, do fingerplays and have a lot of fun!  Although the storytimes are aimed at toddlers and pre-K kids, everyone is welcome!

There will be a short hiatus from June 18 to August 19 since we are going to have a busy summer!
