Head Start children in Youngsville have extended their in-class lessons on gardening to visits into the community. Youngsville Public Library volunteers recently invited both classes to a flower garden craft and story hour, with each child leaving with their own flower to plant. The local Agway was the site of another visit for the children to learn about a variety of plants and gardening tools. Owner Nick Brunecz surprised the children with more flowers to plant.

The Parade Committee has the following request and parade changes. Your church/organization is encouraged to participate by entering a float in this year's parade.
The theme is "All Tracks Lead to Youngsville". This theme represents the new ceremonial entranceway that will be placed along Route 6 as part of the streetscape project. The train reflects the heritage of Youngsville during the booming lumber and oil years. Focus your creation on the man-made and natural history of the Youngsville area.
The parade will be held on Saturday, Aug. 18 at starting at 10:15 a.m. and boast a new parade route. It will form on East Main Street by Wiggers/Abplanalp's and proceed up North Main to Dick's Service Center. Marching units will proceed down North Main and disband at the Youngsville American Legion. Floats should be parked at Dick's Service Center.
We are requesting at least one person from each organization stay with their float at Dick's for an hour after the conclusion of the parade. During this time, boxes for donations on each float will be set out so that monetary donations can be collected, to indicate the People's Choice Awards. All money collected will be kept by the organization that constructed the float. You may contact Lynn Martin, during working hours at 723-1000 with any questions.
Parade forms can be found at www.cornfestyoungsvillepa.blogspot.com. The website also has retail and food vendor forms and fee explanations. It is 'first register, first permitted' when it comes to duplication of vendors (example: only one Avon rep, only one hot dog vendor). Vendors can call Anita at 563-4475 for more information.
John Shaughnesy, chairman of the 2012 Cornfest Committee, is still encouraging everyone to help fund the Youngsville High School Marching Band's trip to Ireland in 2013. The Shaughnesy Challenge is to match his $100 donation. You can add to the pot when the band marches in the 2012 Cornfest Parade. Call 726-0220 to pledge your donation or for more information about Cornfest.

June Story Hour at YPL
Story Hour for ages 3-5 will be offered at Youngsville Public Library this June.
Songs, crafts, stories, and more will be shared by Sara Pilling, who is the librarian at Tidioute Community Charter School. "We are so glad that Sara has agreed to create and implement a summer Story Hour program for our library this June," said Library Director Kristy Wallace. "Sara truly has a natural talent for working with children and encourages them to be active participants during story time through song, crafts, and play. We feel very lucky that Sara has agreed to help us continue our Summer Story Hour program which was previously run by long-time Friends and board member Ellie Dunn."
Previously offered in July, this year's Summer Story Time will be in June on Mondays and Wednesdays for ages 3-5. Pre-register as seating is limited and we also want to ensure that there are enough craft items for everyone to participate. Monday story time is from 1 to 2 p.m. and Wednesday is from 10 to 11 a.m. When registering you will be able to choose which dates and times work best for you and your child's schedule.
The Friends of the Library and board members would like to thank Ellie for all the years that she has tirelessly dedicated to the summer story hour program and although she will be missed, we all understand her desire to reduce her summertime commitments.
The Summer Story Hour program, for ages 3-5, is different than the Summer Super-Reader program which is for kids in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade. Summer Story Hour begins Monday, June 4 and the K-12 Summer Super-Reader Program begins Monday, June 11. Registration forms for both programs are available at the library. Monday and Tuesday Noon-7:30 p.m., Wednesday 10-5:00 p.m., and Fridays Noon-4:00 p.m. Contact 563-7670 for more information.
