History has been made by bridging communities! Have you tried the new bridge? I have not had a chance yet but people have told me that it saves a lot of time. I think the most exciting thing about the bridge is that it’s another part of Little Elm history. Little Elm is considered the Town with Lake Attitude and the bridge helps add to that reputation. For those who live in town the bridge provides a very important time saver connection to the other communities across the lake. The bridge also provides easy time saving access for the other communities to see all the wonderful things that Little Elm has to offer. So I would just like to say, come on over and see us, the water’s fine and we are ready to welcome you.
Speaking of bridging communities, PointBank has been serving numerous cities in Denton County for years and gives back to the communities in many ways. One way is by holding an annual charity golf tournament where the proceeds are given to the public libraries in the communities of Denton County that PointBank serves. Little Elm Public Library recently received a check for $1,277 from the 2008 tournament to be used towards the renovation and expansion of the library. PointBank’s 2009 annual Charity Classic Golf Tournament benefit fundraiser is going to be held on October 24th at Castle Hills Golf Club in Lewisville. They are taking registrations now. Forms are available at PointBank locations and at the Little Elm Public Library. For more information contact Deke Alexander at 940-686-7049 or David Fuller at 940-686-7021. The deadline for entry is September 30th. On behalf of the public libraries that serve Denton County, we appreciate your continued support.
Other events of interest coming up in the next few days include the monthly Little Elm Friends of the library meeting on Thursday, August 13th at 7pm. Friends are important to the successful growth of the library so come check out what’s happening!
On Saturday, August 15th, at 10:30am, family story time will be hosting Molly the Schipperke, certified through Therapy Dog International. This will be Molly’s first time with us so drop by to meet her. We hope to have her visit the third Saturday of every month. Beat the heat and stay at the library to make a summer memories book or jewelry with Woodhaven Creations. The program runs from 12-2, is open to any age and cost $5 per project. Registration is required so call 214-975-0430 to sign up. Also on that day the Knitting Club meets from 1-2. Bring your project and spend time with others who like to knit.
