The 20th Anniversary of Pleasures & Treasures Countryside Folk Art Faire is July 9 at the Warren County Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
This year they have over 20 gate prizes including two tickets to the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game. Roadapple Ridge will entertain, Jack Patterson will play his bagpipes, and the Warren Barbershoppers will serenade. They also have many demonstrations throughout the day. The Double Rainbow Farms will have horses there for free rides and the Shriner Clowns will be in the Kiddie Carnival Area making balloon animals.
Children can listen to a story from the wonderful people from the Youngsville Library. The first eight children to the carnival area are going to be treated to a free bear from Beary Creation. They will have other bears and animals there for you to buy and the cloths to go with them. And lots of crafts for shoppers. Unfortunately, the Second Annual Pleasures & Treasures Trail Run had to be cancelled because of a safety reason with the pavilion being replaced. Hopefully, they will continue next year. New this year, you can have your caricature drawn while you are there by a very talented local artist Jeremy Cross. Stop in to see his work. He will also be demonstrating how he paints pictures with spray paint. Crafts, food, entertainment and lots of fun, join the crowd at the 20th P&T.
Youngsville Library's 6th Annual K-12 Summer "Super-Readers" Registration starts Monday, June 13th. The program is open to all students from Kindergarten (completed) through 12th grade (completed). Sign up with a parent/adult sponsor during library business hours. You read independently (not at the library) and at your own pace. You can read your own books or books that you borrow from the library.
Read as much as you want or as little as you want, but the more you read, the more chances you have to win prizes, fair passes, gift cards, and more. This year's Summer "Super Reader" program runs from Monday, June 13th to Wednesday, July 20th. The sooner you register and receive your reading logs, the better your chances of completing all six reading log levels (S-U-P-E-R & Reader). Those who complete the highest lever (Reader) will receive a bonus prize, 10 extra "raffle ticket chances" for chances to win "Super Reader" prizes, such as DQ and Wal-Mart gift cards, Super Soaker, candy, and fair passes.
