Children’s Corner and so much more…

THANK YOU to the Public Works Department for all the repairs and improvements along the Headwaters Park trail.

The damaged storywalk signs have been repaired along the Hildebrand Conservancy trail. We posted a Back to School story for the whole family to enjoy. The story begins near the Mill House gazebo, which is across from the Fontana Elementary School. Afterwards, you can go to the Headwaters Park trail, and checkout the antics at The Underpants Zoo. The story begins on the south end playground of the school. We hope you get a chance to take in the views of the trails and enjoy a story. PLEASE NOTE– We, tentatively, will be posting stories through the month of October, weather permitting.

Here’s a great project the whole family can contribute to while enjoying our beautiful fall weather on one the trails around the village.

Story walk along Hildebrand Trail… Since the students couldn’t come to the library, I brought the library to them. Storywalk boards were put along the Hildebrand Nature trail. Permanent stands will be installed for students and residents in the future–stay tuned.

5K students enjoy a gorgeous day and a story. Thank you Ms. Murtell.
