Chester’s Summer Adventures — Come Read Along!

June 7 @ 9:00 am - August 24 @ 3:00 pm

Throughout the summer, I’m going to post about the wonderful things I get to see and experience as I balloon across the world.  Check back often to see where I have flown!

    • June 7: Starting in Wellsboro to pick up some books to read during my Adventures.  Off to the Friends of The Green Free Library’ book sale in the Gmeiner!
    • June 8: Heading to the Green to participate in Family Day/Children’s Health Fair.  Miss Mia and Miss Anita will be here talking about our summer programs.
    • June 9: It’s the Pet Parade!  Wonder if they will allow me to walk in it?  Plus, it’s the Friends’ book sale bag sale!  Great time to stock up on my favorite authors.
    • June 11: Hope to have time to make a Gobbie animal craft at the Library. Happening tonight at 5:15pm.  Would be a great companion during my travels!
    • June 14-15: It’s the Laurel Festival! What good food should I try?  Can’t miss the Parade!  I have a front row seat on the Library’s porch.
    • June 19: First day of the Library’s preK-school age programs.  Dinosaur show and ice cream!  Yum!
    • June 21-22: I will miss the Library’s Planetarium Show at Mansfield University on June 24 and the Bloomsburg Children’s Museum on June 26.  Flying up to Jasper National Park in Alberta, Canada, trying to see the Northern Lights.  Wish me luck!  Plus, maple syrup, maple sugar, maple candy – too many choices.  Wonder if it is as good as the maple products in Tioga County?  Canada is such a big country.  Will take me several days to get across it.
    • June 28: Won’t be in Wellsboro attend tomorrow’s painting event at the Library.  Maybe someone will paint me in the balloon?
    • July 2-3: Back to America!  Heading out West to celebrate Independence Day!  First stop – South Dakota:   Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial.
    • July 4: Flying from SD to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon.  Hey!  There is Colorado – wonder if I have time to say hi to Director Leslie’s son, Jim?  Hope to see fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July!
    • July 5 Need to see the Pacific Ocean before heading to Mexico.  Will I see whales?  Will the sand be hot on my paws if I land?
    • July 6: Heading to see lots of animals at the San Diego Zoo.  Lions, tigers, and bears!  Oh my….
    • July 7: Yucatan, Mexico, here I come!  Hope to see sharks – but from high in my balloon!  Need to try some Mexican food like tacos, tortillas, and panuchos.
    • July 8-10: Sailing across the Gulf of Mexico.  But no time to stop in Florida.  Walt Disney World and Universal will have to wait for my next trip.  Heading to Bermuda!
    • July 11-15: Time to fly down the Atlantic Ocean to South America. But what countries should I visit on the way?  Puerto Rico, Belize, Jamaica, Aruba.  So many to choose from!  Need to see the Panama Canal!  Heading to Brazil next to learn about the Rio Olympics in 2016.  There is the Christ The Redeemer statue!  WOW
