A golden Ticket
If you received this edition of the Free Enterprise in a home delivery package, make sure you carefully check out every page because you may have a Golden Ticket.
Each week, the Free Enterprise randomly slips a Golden Ticket voucher — which can be redeemed at the Enterprise office for a gift card from a local restaurant or business — inside one of its home delivery newspapers. The lucky reader can use the certificate at his or her leisure, but we would love to hear from winners and include a photo in the paper.
If you find a certificate inside your Free Enterprise, congratulations from us and please let us know by calling Pam Boyd at 970-328-6656 Ext. 4 or emailing email@example.com.
Anyone who is currently receiving home delivery of the Free Enterprise, but would prefer not to have the newspaper delivered can contact David Hakes at 970-748-2976.
Fizz, Boom, Read
Strap on your safety goggles, button up your lab coat and get ready to have some fun. Join the Eagle and Gypsum public libraries for this year’s summer reading program, — “Fizz, Boom, READ.”
Students entering first through sixth grades are invited to participate in eight weeks of summer reading fun. The libraries will be offering a variety of weekly programs, movies, and contests all about the wonders of science — exploring food science, grossology, weather, nature and much more.
Registration for summer reading begins at the districtwide kickoff celebrations on Tuesday, June 3, at the Eagle and Gypsum public libraries. Children’s musicians Jeff and Paige will perform live concerts at 1 p.m. in Eale and at 3 p.m. in Gypsum.
When children sign up for the “Fizz, Boom, READ” summer reading program, they each receive a free book bag with a schedule of events and a reading log to keep track of time spent reading. Prizes are awarded throughout the summer as children reach each of their targeted reading goals.
“We are so excited to bring Boulder-based children’s musicians Jeff and Paige to the libraries for this special kickoff event,” said Kari Thorne, Children’s Librarian at the Avon Public Library. “The musical duo incorporates songs, storytelling, and interactive play to engage kids with the natural world.”
For information on dates and times for any of these programs, call the Eagle Public Library at 328-8800,or the Gypsum Public Library at 524-5080, or visit the library website at http://www.evld.org.
The summer reading program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and Alpine Bank and all programs are free and open to the public.
The Gypsum Public Library has expanded service hours to include additional evening and weekend hours of operation. As of this week, the library will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. on Saturday. The library is closed on Sundays.
