Mar 10 @ 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library will continue to offer programming for “tweens” through April.

The program, “Tween Challenge Takeover,” will include activities and experiments that will draw from the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics and the “maker-space” movement.

The programs will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5 p.m. and are meant for kids in fifth through seventh grades.

The following is the schedule of activities planned through April.

March 10 and 12 — Improvisational acting

March 17 and 19 — Cooking

Sheridan AARP meeting @ Sheridan Senior Center
Mar 13 @ 5:30 pm

SHERIDAN — Sheridan AARP members will meet at 5:30 p.m. Friday at the Sheridan Senior Center.

Wayne Schatz will present the “Wyoretired.com” website he built for a class sponsored by the National office of AARP. The session was called “Volunteer Leadership Institute” or VLI and was offered to current AARP volunteers who were interested in learning new leadership skills and tools. The VLI was held over the last six months through webinars, virtual/online classes, books, teleconference calls, PowerPoint presentations and in-person sessions.

Candidates were nominated by AARP state office personnel and selected by the national office staff. Each participant was asked to develop a project that would help in a learning track (advocacy, community outreach or external representation). Schatz chose to build a website designed to share information and resources with Wyoming retirees. He will share highlights of the VLI class and visit the website with our local Sheridan AARP chapter.

All members of the community are welcome to this free event.

The evening will begin with a potluck at 5:30 p.m. Attendees are asked to bring their own place settings and a covered dish to share.

The Senior Center is located at 211 Smith St.

This is one hunt that has definitely gone to the dogs! And another one that will go very fast.

Dogs will need to stay on a leash and, if the pooch has an accident, clean-up is your responsibility (doggie poop bags will be available). The Easter Egg Bunny will probably not show up, because bunnies generally get a little nervous around dogs. Co-sponsor is Sheridan Media.
