Only you can… “Imagine Your Story”! The Sunfield Library’s Summer Reading program is starting Tuesday, July 7th and running through Saturday, August 8th. Registration is available through our email firstname.lastname@example.org , Facebook page by message, or simply by giving us a call at (517)566-8065.
Due to the limited number of 6 patrons allowed in the building, at one time, we are asking parents and grandparents to register by one of those methods. Both children and adult programs are available. Top points in three categories will be recognized. Reward levels and raffle entries will be part of the program, as well. All items will still need to be returned to the outside book return for quarantine, except for reading folders. Books can be reserved online by going to our website http://sunfieldlibrary.michlibrary.org/ (and click on the picture of the book cart),
email email@example.com, by Facebook message, or by calling us. If coming inside, we are asking to limit the number of people and amount of time in the building. Otherwise, we are still providing curbside service for the whole family! Hours are currently Tues-Fri 12pm-6pm and Sat 9am-1pm. If you have any questions, please give us a call. This is a crazy time but we will work this out! Can you Imagine….????

Adopt-A-Highway Pick-up Date Set
The next Adopt-A-Highway trash pick-up of the season will take place on Saturday, July 25th. Everyone interested in spiffing up a bit of our community is encouraged to participate.
We will meet at 9 AM in the Best Tax Service parking lot just West of the Sunfield blinker light. If you need more information please call our project chairman Derek Desgranges at 269-838-7686.
Derek says if for any reason you can’t make it on Saturday, but would still like to help out by doing some picking up on a different day this week, just give him a call and get some bags and he will give you a small section to take care of.
Ball Games At The Park
The Tigers aren’t playing ball. The Lugnuts aren’t playing ball. All of the youth programs were closed down for the summer. So what is a sports junkies supposed to do? Well now Bunkie I am here to provide you with a solution. Did you know that there are ball games taking place at the Sunfield Main Field and Foltz Field every week? Yessireebob!
· There is a men’s softball league that plays on Thursday nights. There are multiple games played.
· There is a co-ed softball league that plays on Friday nights. There are multiple games played.
· On Monday, July 6th there will be a Maple Valley versus Marshall youth baseball game.

Craft Show Reminder
IMPORTANT NOTICE! Last year the SPY’s took over sponsoring the “Open Class Craft Show” at the Farmer’s Picnic. The Craft Show is headed up by DeAnna Clark (517-231-2527). It is the SPY’s hope that we can get more kids involved in the craft show, and working with DeAnna the entry classes and age brackets for kids has been expanded. So please help us in inspiring area youth to share their creative talents and place an entry or two, or three, in the show.
Can You Help Us Out?
Don’t forget to round up any glassware or new or “gently used” stuffed animals that we can use in the Dime Pitch Booth at the Farmer’s Picnic in August. If you have anything to donate please contact our new project chairperson, Wayne Simmons at 616-550-2876.
· Something To Ponder: When your wife is mowing the lawn, that’s not the best time to ask her when dinner will be ready.
· Thoughts On Aging: I miss the 60’s when bread was still good for you, and no one knew what kale was.
