The Town of Highland Lions Club have installed a very nice banner in Eldred that is thanking all the essential workers for their dedication to performing their jobs during the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Linda Anderson who is a member of the Highland Lions and attended the installation of the banner on Friday, July 3rd in Eldred, “the Highland Lions wanted to do something special to recognize all of our essential workers, and we decided the banner was the best thing we could do to show our appreciation and support.”

According to Cathy Daboul of the Lions Club the banner was designed by Nicole Camacho and she was kind enough to donate her design fee she would normally charge for the banner. Another great community project sponsored by the Highland Lions Club.

Even though Governor Cuomo hasn't said one word about what's happening with our libraries and, as of July 3rd, all the libraries in New Jersey have opened the work of our Sunshine Hall Free Library goes on even though the doors are still closed. For some time now the Library has been providing curbside pickup of books ordered through their website.

Starting on Monday, July 6th and continuing through Saturday, August 15th, the Library will begin their 2020 Virtual Summer Reading Program. This is the Library's first ever virtual program. When the reading program starts, the participants will receive an email every Monday morning with a password and the link to sign into a Zoom meeting.

Also, each week there will be a goodie bag available for curbside pickup at the Sunshine Hall Library for every child enrolled in the Summer Reading Program. The goodie bag will have craft supplies, a weekly prize, the weekly challenge, a reading log and books! During the Reading Program children can request any book they want or let the Library pick books for them based on age and the weekly theme.

Please call the Library before you come to pick up your goodie bags and you can do the pickup Tuesdays through Thursdays 12 - 4 p.m., Fridays 12 - 6 p.m. and Saturdays 10 - 3 p.m. The password given by email will also give the readers access to special content on the Library's website that can be accessed at any time.

The Library has partnered with Page Turner Adventures, an entertainment platform that will be available for the participants with programs including comedy storytelling, theater shows, craft projects, recipes, children's authors and book illustrators, interviews, guest performers, contests, games and every Friday is “Special Guest Day” featuring some amazing performers, from Ringling Brothers Circus Clowns, famous musicians, Grammy Award Winning Singers and virtual behind the scenes visits to zoos, science museums and even the International Clown Hall of Fame.

Parents and children are welcome to join, and the first live kickoff event will be on Thursday, July 9th at 4 p.m. You can join the Virtual Summer Reading Program at any time, and it is open to children of all ages up to 18 yrs old and is free and lots of fun! For more information call the Sunshine Hall Free Library at (845) 557-6258.
