Kensington Library News
Nora Rhoades from Post Rock Extension provided another great Brainy Babies program Monday evening, March 19th. The littles enjoyed an interactive sensory experience while the parents appreciated some quality time with their child. Nora has been wonderful in sharing this great series of programs encouraging early learning while also enhancing the relationship between adult and child.
Local ladies have allowed us to display their quilts this month for National Quilt Month. Wall hangings, table runners, full sized quilts and a nice display of old and unique pin cushions are displayed. Quilters sharing their quilts are Nancy Hagman, Nancy Wangerin, Doris Wiens, Ladonna Weltmer, Jaunita Reneberg, Wilda Conaway, Alice Rietzke, Karen Cole, Karen Bischopping, and Sherry Newbrey. Danielle Riley also helped these gals with setup. Stop by to check out the display and visit our wonderful library.
If someone is stupid enough to walk away from you, be smart enough to let them go.
No matter how much it hurts now, someday you will look back and realize your struggles changed your life for the better.
The most humbling statement we can say is, "I am nothing without God." and the most powerful statement is, "With God, I can do anything."
