A Beautiful Day for Plein Air Painting!

Today was such a glorious day to get outdoors…and we did just that! We took our paints, brushes and canvas boards behind the library to paint. That “bit” of summer breeze hardly discouraged our artists!

Thanks to all for coming out for summer programs.

I hope some of our art work will be returned on loan for display in our

Annual Art Exhibit & Sale, September 30th – October 1st

So thoughtful…

A good “old” friend of the library has dedicated and shared some of her art to encourage young readers.

Thank you Kate!

For a confirmation project Kate decided to give something back to the library, which gave her so much as she was growing up.  

All of the pictures are free hand drawings with marker and/or colored pencil. They’re beautiful!

It was a steamy summer evening…

as the crowd gathered on the back lawn of the Vincentown Library to celebrate the first ever Frog Jump, organized by Mrs Pew (aka Ms Kim).  Yes indeed, it was an evening to remember.  Registration was brisk with the number of entries topping at a grand total of 31!  Froggy, Astro, Leo, Sonic, Bunz, Beans, Bob Ross, Bob Ross Jr., and Fiona (to name just a few) were all proudly entered into the event by their Frog Jockeys.  

Enthusiasm and nervousness built as Ms Kim proceeded to explain the rules to the contestants. 

The jumps were to be measured (almost accurately) by the expert  team of Professor Bullfrog and Amphibious with their highly technical equipment.

As each contestant stepped up to the line to jump, a hush grew over the crowd. Some of the frogs had to be sweet talked into a jump by their frog jockey and others seemed to know the game and took off jumping in all directions.  Midway into the  competition a young 8 year old girl, by the name of Brynn, stepped forward with her frog Fiona, clasped in her hands.  Upon setting Fiona upon the starting point, the crowd gasped!  No Bull!  This frog Fiona, was easily 10 times the size of all other contestants!

Well, the results were tallied and there’s probably no reason to reveal the winner of the farthest jump…

Thanks to Mrs Pew (aka Ms Kim) and the Southampton Girl Scouts and the able crew registering, measuring and tallying the competition.

Medals for longest jump in under 6 age group; over 6 age group and a medal awarded for the longest 1st recorded jump (both age groups included)

Such a great evening! 

All frogs were promised to be returned to their homes to tell the story of their participation in the first Vincentown Library Frog Jump!
