Dinosaur bones and ‘Despicable Me’ at The Library at Cedar Creek Lake
Special to The Monitor
SEVEN POINTS–Upcoming events at The Library at Cedar Creek Lake promise a roaring good time for kids of all ages.
Dinosaurs will trample the library at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 5 with “Dinosaur George” Blasing, a famous paleontologist and television personality, who will share his love of all things prehistoric with a fascinating presentation on dinosaurs.
His interactive show includes over 25 dinosaur skulls and bones, teeth and claws from the most extraordinary creatures that ever walked the planet – including those that once roamed our own backyards! It’s a program your children will never forget.
“Movie Time” for Kids will start at 10 a.m. Friday, July 1, and will feature the film “Tangled.” On Friday, July 8, the feature film will be the funny, heartwarming movie “Despicable Me.” Join us for the action and suspense, complete with drinks and popcorn.
Although the library will be closed Monday, July 4, the “Teen Room” will be open from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Friday for plenty of fun and games.
The Library at Cedar Creek Lake is a non-profit organization located in Seven Points that serves many communities within the greater Cedar Creek Lake area.
Supported in large part through donations from the public, this valuable resource center supplies library materials and services, promotes and assists in educational development and encourages reading to over 100,000 visitors a year.
For more information about the library, its summer programs or how you can help, visit www.cedarcreeklibrary.com  or call (903) 432-4185.

 

Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center gears up for July 4 fireworks
Special to The Monitor
ATHENS-Preparations are under way for the annual Fourth of July fireworks show at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center (TFFC) set for after dark Monday, July 4.
The show will last approximately one-half hour and is one of the biggest in East Texas.
The fireworks show is directed and produced by Alpha-Lee Enterprises, Inc., of Liverpool.
The show is a Keep Athens Beautiful event.
Even though TFFC will be closed to regular visitation during the day, it will open at 4 p.m. with free admission for the fireworks show.
Visitors are encouraged to fish in the stocked casting pond while waiting for the fireworks, which will begin at dark.
No license is required to fish and bait and tackle are furnished for free as long as the supply lasts. Fishing is catch-and-release only; no harvesting will be allowed. Fishing ends approximately one-half hour before the fireworks begin.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase, and people are encouraged to bring picnics.
KCKL (FM 95.9) will broadcast patriotic music during the show.
Pets, alcohol, tobacco products and private fireworks, including “snap caps” and sparklers, are not allowed.
The fireworks show is sponsored and paid for by the City of Athens, local businesses and individuals.
The event has become an area tradition, with many people dressing in red, white and blue in keeping with the holiday theme.
Parking is available in the main TFFC parking lot and in an overflow parking area on Peninsula Point Road. Persons using the overflow parking area may enter through Gate C, which is across the street from the parking area.
For more information or directions, please call (903) 676-2277.
