Authors, Halloween at Library & News Round-Up

Author's Day
Happy National Author's Day! Do we have any local published authors in LaVergne? I know Pete Love from Smyrna had a novel published (about a paramedic and a soccer coach) because one of my friends was telling me last night about his book signings. He's a local CPR trainer who certified my Girl Scout troop last year. I'll just bet there are more authors in our area, or if there aren't I can think of some who should be published (am looking at someone amayesing).

The initial meeting to determine the interest of those young people (13-18 years of age) wanting to go to Lavergne, France in the Summer of 2007 will be at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 6, 2006 at La Vergne City Hall. Here is an article from the Daily News Journal this past week (or so) about the trip. Personally, I'm very excited about it and plan to drag my 16-year-old to the meeting and hopefully her friend who is taking French in high school.

Gross Grub at Library
Gross Grub was served at the La Vergne Library last Tuesday. Now some of this is pretty disgusting - I think I'll save the worst for last. Blech. Or not at all. Blogger won't let me upload the photos for now, so I'll try again later.

Finally, Blogger let me post the "Freaky Fingers" but now I can't post more pics. Sigh.

Oh, And One More Thing
I wanted to put this comment in a post so more folks can see it.
From the LHS Student Council and Reps: A huge THANK YOU to the residents of Woodland Hills for supporting the La Vergne High School Student Council last night with generous donations of canned and non perishable food items. The sophomore class representatives collected food items from their neighbors for the "Trick or Treat for Cans" campaign for donation to local food banks. Woodland Hills -You have big hearts and we love you!
