By now, many students are out of school for the summer. Now there’s the problem of what to do to occupy their time for the next couple of months. The older students will look for work, so that they can earn some money for the fall. Elementary students will be bored after the first week and all we’ll hear is, “There’s nothing for me to do.” Please don’t let them spend all summer indoors playing video games. A great solution for those boring days of summer might be “Summer Fun in the Sun Day Camp”. This program begins next Monday, June 11, and runs through Thursday, August 2. The two elementary schools in Three Rivers will host this program. Andrews Elementary, 200 South Douglas Avenue and Hoppin Elementary, 415 North Main Street are the two venues. The Day Camps will run from 9 A.M. until noon. The fee is $2 per child. Registration and the one-time fee will be taken at the school of choice on the first day of attendance. The program is open to school age children 5 to 12. A daily lunch will be served, and crafts, sports, and games will be available.

If religious music is calming to your soul, you’ll want to make plans to attend a performance by the Olivetians, a ministry of Olivet Nazarene University. They will perform next Sunday, June 10, at the Three Rivers Church of the Nazarene, at 10:40 A.M. The church is located at 1221 Coon Hollow Road in Three Rivers. This is at the intersection of Coon Hollow Road and US-131.
Finally, something extra for the chef of the family. Several common-sense ideas:
Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster.
To make scrambled eggs or omelets rich, add a couple spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream and then beat them up.
Add garlic immediately to a recipe, if you want a light taste of garlic, and at the end of the recipe, if you want a stronger taste of garlic.
See you Out and About!
