Briefly…

Photo submitted to Times Observer Dr. Science explored the world of science and the scientific process during his Wacky Science Show on June 21 at the Warren Public Library. More than just whiz, bang, poof and pop, this exciting event put science in the hands of several volunteers. This show won the Dow Chemical’s Touch-Tech Award for excellence in hands-on science education. Dr. Science, aka Cris Johnson, has a great rapport with children and adults alike as he educates and entertains with humor and enthusiasm. Check out the library’s website www.warrenlibrary.org to see what other events are in store for the Libraries Rock summer reading programs.

Warren gardens

For the 46th year, members of Warren Garden Club turned out to plant Warren’s municipal gardens.

Tucked here and there in the City of Warren, these little gardens allow residents to enjoy the summer season at its best as well as providing a natural setting for those who are part of the fast-paced urban lifestyle. Warren Garden Club enjoys caring for the municipal gardens for the enjoyment of all Warren residents.

Throughout the summer season, Garden Club members will maintain the gardens with tasks such as fertilizing, watering and weeding. Besides the municipal gardens the Warren Garden Club also maintains the Woodland Garden at Wetmore Park.

The City of Warren supplies all funds for the purchase of 1,800 plants for the gardens and the Veteran’s Council provides $100 for the purchase of plants for the General Joseph Warren Garden. Plants and mulch were purchased for the gardens from True Value Hardware, Ekey’s Garden Center and delivered by them to the gardens in early morning.

Warren Garden Club welcomes new members. Contact Sandra Ransom, membership chairman, at 723-5107 for more information.
