Dolan, Mary Beth The Great Pictionary Relay Race Health & Fitness- Other,
Literature- Other,
Visual Arts- Drawing
The drawing game Pictionary is mashed-up with Relay racing. Teams play against each other drawing a "round of 12 cards". The typical "all play" category found in original Pictionary is replaced with current popular books, and their characters; the other normal categories of objects, places, celebrities, verbs are also played. The players hand-off the marker as a baton- and the first team to guess all their cards each round wins. Call for more info- as this one is a little involved rule-wise. losing team each round will have to perform some sort of physical exercise (jumping jacks, etc.). Team that wins the most "rounds" of play wins.

Riley, Tom ORPHAN TRAIN RIDERS Genealogy,

ORPHAN TRAIN RIDERS----I am the author of 4 books on the subject. The largest mass relocation of children in America took place during the orphan train era 1854-1929. Over 400,000 children were transported by rail out of NYC and major cities. They were America's first foster children. I do a lecture/video presentation. Life in the 19th Century could be brutal. When adults fell victim to alcoholism, job loss, or drugs, the children were the first to suffer.

Visual Arts- Other
With a cast of colorful characters and deft sleight-of-hand, master puppeteer Patrick Wadden brings to life Homer's ancient epic of Odysseus and his trouble-fraught journey home from the Trojan War. A voyage of two-weeks turns into ten years as capricious gods and wayward mortals thwart the Hero’s passage across the 'wine-dark sea'. The infamous one-eyed Cyclops, the alluring Sirens, six-headed Skylla, and the terrible whirlpool of Charybdis are but a few of the legendary monsters in this timeless adventure story. Through courage, cleverness and determination Odysseus triumphs over these trials and eventually is reunited with his family. Tales From the Odyssey is designed to introduce young audiences (ages 7 & up) and their families to one of the foundational stories of western literature. The visual elements in this poetic presentation are inspired by ancient Greek painted ceramics. Available June -December 2015, the show is well-suited for public libraries and small community venues. In fact, it's a perfect fit for the 2015 Summer Reading Theme: Every Hero Has A Story.
