Digging Up Some Fun!

Houston Archeological Society

Summer is flying by, so we want to make sure you don’t miss our archeology presentation on Saturday, August 2nd. The Houston Archeological Society will share about artifacts recovered from Dimond Knoll, one of the earliest sites ever found in the Cypress area and Harris County.

Thanks to their efforts thousands of artifacts, including hundreds of complete dart and arrow points dating from Paleoindian to prehistoric, were recovered. This is a chance to hear their story, so don’t miss out. We’ll see you at 10:30 AM in the Earl Elliott Room.

Roller Derby 101

Roller Derby’s recent revival began in Austin in 2001. Since that time, derby leagues have sprouted up around the world. Visit with members of our local derby team, The Missfits, as they regale you with tales of a fast moving and hard hitting sport that could be in the Olympics in as little as ten years. You can also find out how to join the team – even if you haven’t skated since you were six. Stop by Atascocita Branch on August 2 anytime between 2 PM – 4PM to meet our local derby ladies. All ages welcome.
