Big doins in Lansing
There are so many thing going on in our area, it is hard for us to keep up. Starting tonight, April 15, the Historical Museum is sponsoring a spaghetti dinner at the City Hall. The dinners have been noted for their good spaghetti and delicious desserts along with good conversation. It is from 5 to 7 p.m. and do hope you can make it.
Tomorrow morning the Lansing Educational Foundation is having a Student Recognition breakfast starting at 7 a.m. at the new Lansing Elementary School. This is a wonderful annual affair and you need advanced tickets for this. All students above a certain grade-point average is recognized and given a certificate. It is a wonderful annual affair, and this year the speaker is Wayne Simien, so keep this in mind for next year.
Now is the time to sign your children at the Parks and Rec Office for summer sports. There is much to choose from here.
Beginning May 1, our Lansing Community Library’s winter Saturday hours change to the summer hours of 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Also the library is a “wireless hot spot” so you can bring in your personal laptop computer any time it is open. They are also happy to take books that are in good condition to add to their collection or to be sold to help support the library. A “Friends of the Library” is now in progress and anyone can join. They will have a fundraising book sale in the fall.
The library and Parks and Recreation Department are bringing the “Sizzlin’ Summer Program Series” for the entertainment of the children of Lansing. All performances will be on at 10 a.m. Thursdays at the Lansing High School Auditorium and will cost only $1 each if tickets are purchased in advance at the Library or the Park and Rec Department. There will be eight programs starting June 3 and ending July 22. These programs have always been a favorite of our children, and this year they include three magicians, two jugglers, a clown, ventriloquisms-illusions, yo-yo artist and comedy juggling,
Mark your calendar for our annual Lansing Daze and the Kansas Sampler on May 1 and 2. That is just the beginning of our local activities. Sounds to me like a busy and fun year for all.
