NORTH WEBSTER — Get a sneak preview of spring fashions at the Big Deal Reveal Fashion Show sponsored by the library at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, March 13. The event will take place in the North Webster Community Center Banquet Hall where Gypsy Jacks Fashions will present their spring line-up of original fashions and accessories for ladies and children. Each piece is uniquely designed and created by Jackie Bontrager of Goshen and will be modeled by area ladies.
Bontrager has been designing and creating original fashions since she was 12 years old and has produced her own line of clothing since 1993. Everything presented will be available for sale after the show. Drawings and free refreshments are all part of this free public event. Come and spend an enjoyable Sunday afternoon where “fashion meets fun.”
Babies and their parents will be having fun during lapsit at 11 a.m. every Tuesday morning as staff introduces our youngest patrons to books and stories. Parents also learn how to engage their children in meaningful play and receive information on early literacy development. Lapsit is for infants up to 24 months.
Older children, ages 5 to 12, engage in meaningful play at LEGO Club from 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday, March 12, as they learn problem solving, critical thinking, and fine motor development while having a fun time building with LEGOs. LEGO Club meets the second Saturday each month and provides an opportunity for parents and kids to spend quality time together in fun activity.
