After a one-year hiatus, we're pleased to once again host a poetry contest as part of the 2015 Empire Asparagus Festival.
Submit your asparagus-inspired verse by Thursday, May 14. Poems can be dropped off at the library; mailed to Glen Lake Library, PO Box 325, Empire, MI 49630; or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be sure to include your contact information with your poem. Contestants are encouraged to come present their own poetry at the reading on Saturday, May 16 at 2:00 pm. Prizes will be awarded in both adult (age 18+) and children's categories.
Join us for this presentation by biologist and science teacher Rob Karner on Monday, May 18, 7:00 pm, at the Glen Arbor Township Hall. Rob will discuss the unique nature of our Glen Lake watershed, describing the various threats to its environmental health, and offering strategies for property owners to help preserve our precious natural environment.
