A tradition of kindness continues in the Cody library. Social distancing will be practiced. Please wear a mask.
Kids’ Summer Reading will culminate in a Kindness celebration. Drop by between 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7 on the west lawn of the children’s library.
Find out how many kindness tickets were earned for each project, receive a goody bag and tattoo, plus spot the library unicorn. Ruth Torrey sent two dollar bill bookmarks to give away. She and her late husband Peter have donated thousands of two dollar bills over the years. D.J. Shuman will create balloon art from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Participants received tickets for reading, being read to and completing related activities. Those tickets were placed in receptacles for two Kindness Projects; Special Olympics of Wyoming, featuring our own Emma Foley, and the Cody Covid Relief Fund which is an interfaith organization formed to help local people struggling to pay bills during the pandemic.
Past kindness endeavors include the Park County Animal Shelter, Silas Johnson and Noah Rivers’ family medical expenses, the music park in City Park and the Cody High School band.
Teens congregated on the Bistro Patio Saturday Aug. 1. Prizes were awarded and a good time was had by all.
