DON'T DRAG YOUR FEET

Are you dragging your feet getting ready for hurricane season? How do you feel about another one coming so soon after Hurricane Ike? Are you like me and don't want to face it? It seems like I don't have enough energy to think about it, get prepared or even to go through another one. A lot of this comes from post traumatic syndrome. Check out some helpful books that can help with this situation. Meanwhile, pick up the new free hurricane preparedness materials at the library.

 

IT'S OFFICIALLY HERE!

Summer is officially here! Are you ready? Do you have plans? What are you going to do? Are you bored already?

Start a New Activity This Summer - with the Whole Family!

Geocaching is a fairly new sport or game that an individual or a whole family can enjoy. Almost anyone can find some appeal in geocaching: for the gadget hound, electronics; for puzzle fans, mental challenges; for outdoor enthusiasts, hiking, boating, climbing, and diving; and for parents, a chance to get kids away from video screens and have them burn off some energy. Geocaching is part treasure hunt and part outdoor exploration. You use a gps and the internet to get started. Then the treasure hunt begins! Get some books at the library to help you learn. People of all ages play...any time of year and anywhere in the world. So, get on your feet, out the door, and start looking and try out geocaching this summer! There are 3 caches right here in Highlands! Let us know how it goes!
