Buzz off! I'm reading.
Summer Reading is not just for kids! The Adult Summer Reading theme is 'Buzz off! I'm reading."

Adults, write a two line review of the book you just completed reading, rate it and turn in the slip. For each review turned in your name is entered for prize drawings. Buzz off! I'm reading.

Your ratings and reviews of favorite (and not-so-favorite) will be on display to share with all Two Rivers readers!

At stake - a $100.00 gasoline gift card!

Babygarten Summer Session Registration

Summer Sessions

July 10 - August 15
Mornings:  Thursdays, 9:30-10:30 AM 

Evenings:  Thursdays, 6:30-7:30 PM

Babygarten is much more than a play group! Infants and their caregivers will share nursery rhymes, songs, and books but also get a chance to make fun projects that demonstrate the babies’ developmental milestones - usually a homemade toy or a baby book item.

Many projects and activities will emphasize the importance of reading to babies AND parents will learn how to do this most effectively. Each instructor will also share insight about infant development and parenting. The class concludes with a free play period.

Program meets once a week for 6 weeks.

Program is open to infants (birth to 18 months) and their caregivers and is limited to 12 participants per class. 

To register, please call 793-7116 or stop by the children’s desk.

East Twin River Paddle Open
You may remember the first annual Paddle Open by another name, 300 Rivers. Last year on April 14, 2007 Wisconsin canoeist Rick Kark marked his 300th Wisconsin river canoed on the East Twin River. Kark led a contingency of fellow paddlers that rowed from the Mishicot Dam to Paddlers Park in Two Rivers on the East Twin River. One year and 12 days later canoeists and kayakers left Mishicot Dam for the Paddlers Park destination under the new moniker – ‘East Twin River Paddle Open.’
As was the case last year, there was a mishap with Two Rivers City Manager, Greg Buckley’s canoe. Victims claimed by Buckley’s deft canoeing skills include last year’s dunk - Mark Matthews, Two Rivers City Council President and this year’s victim - Frank Lasee, Representative for District 2, Wisconsin State Legislature. Said Buckley, “Working my way from local government, to state representative, next year I need a federal representative in the canoe!”
