Recs and Reads
By Anne McKay Garris
Last call for this season's Family Game Night on Wednesday, April 23, at the Beach Recreation Center from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., just long enough to really whomp your opponent at Chinese Checkers, chess, checkers, backgammon or any others you happen to like to play. This is the last Family Game Night for this season as the longer daylight hours encourage families to hang out at the beach.
Swimming pool hours at the Family Aquatic Center get longer, starting April 21. Once that magic date is here, the pool will be open from noon to 6:45 p.m. on Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. on the week-ends. There will be swim teams and swim lessons available. Call 462-6020 for details.
Meantime, the Friends of the Clearwater Beach Recreation/Library are interested in your wants and wishes for recreation center activities for the summer. If you have a suggestion, call Pat Power at 446-0929.
And hats off to the volunteers who have already signed up to help out in the library for the months of April and May. We'll be needing substitutes during the summer, so drop by and put your name on the list. It's a pleasant -- and helpful -- way to spend an afternoon. Besides, you get a look at all the interesting books and entertaining DVD's available just for the saying, "I want that one. Here's my library card."
And, if you are over fifty, ask to see the Elderhostel Schedule. Elderhostel programs are well-planned, interesting and informative and less expensive than doing it on your own. The Elderhostel people plan your trip, arrange for transportation and accommodations, hire experts to explain to you what you are seeing and generally look after you. It's a good adventure without the hassle.
Your Beach Library keeps up-to-date Elderhostel program schedules for your convenience. Elderhostel may be the only programs that tempt you to exaggerate your age so you are eligible to go. But that's not necessary. You can go, even if you are under fifty, you just need to persuade an "elder" to go with you.
