A&E briefs: Western History Book Club schedules October events

Western History Book Club schedules October events

The Western History Book Club kicks off its fall season with two October events. On Tuesday, Oct. 13, members will hold a soup supper and planning session in the Community Room of the Breckenridge Police Station in Breckenridge. The supper begins at 6 p.m. followed by the planning session for the coming months through spring 2016. The following week the group will sponsor a field trip to Golden and Denver on Thursday, Oct. 22. Plans include a visit to the mining museum at Colorado School of Mines followed by a trip by light rail to Denver’s Union Station for a tour there.

The Western History Book Club, now registered with the Summit County Libraries, was formerly associated with the Summit Historical Society wherein it offered book discussions and outings for a period of 18 years.

The book club has an open membership and seeks to attract both Summit County residents and seasonal visitors. Book discussion meetings are monthly and outings are seasonal. Most often, a topic is chosen and members report on readings so related. Each meeting is self-contained, thus allowing for flexibility in member attendance. Meeting locations vary, but an attempt is made to accommodate as many Summit County residents as possible. If you are interested in attending either or both of the October events or wish to be on the book club’s mailing list, please contact the coordinator Karen Musolf at (970) 453-8874.

Spaces still available in Frisco October “No School” day camp

The town of Frisco’s Recreation Department is offering a “No School”/Winter Fun Club day camp for children ages 5-12 on Oct. 23 and 26. The Summit School District October school break is in its second year, and Frisco Recreation staff added the October camp in 2014 to provide the opportunity for kids to have inspiring and fun filled adventures on their days off while giving parents the peace of mind that their children are in a safe and fun environment.

The rate for Frisco residents is $40/day and for non-residents it is $45/day. Fun Club offers an “additional child” discount of 20 percent, to receive this discount parents must register at the Frisco Adventure Park Day Lodge in person or by calling the Day Lodge at (970) 668-2558. Parents of campers with any special needs must contact the Recreation Programs Coordinator at (970) 668-5276 ext. 3053 or SaraS@townoffrisco.com at least ten days in advance of their child’s attendance at a Town of Frisco recreation program.

Summit County Library’s fall reading program continues

The Summit County Library is currently hosting its fall reading program, Stop Me if You’ve Read This One. Stop by any of the libraries and pick up your game card and flier on the program. Patrons are asked to provide reviews which will be shared county-wide. Each completed form entitles the patron to a drawing for one of three prize baskets. Donations for the baskets are currently accepted at your library.

On Wednesday, Oct. 14 at 6:30 p.m., the Main Library in Frisco kicks off this year’s program with Thomas Tudor, former sentinel and relief commander at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Tudor will discuss the history of Arlington Cemetery.
