Recs and Reads
By Anne McKay Garris
Population demographics from 2007 indicate that Clearwater Beach is home to approximately 500 children between the ages of zero and fourteen. At last month's Friends of the Clearwater Beach Recreation Center and Library meeting, we talked about those children and their rightful place at the Clearwater Beach Recreation Center which started life as the Youth Center and has had times of being filled with young laughter throughout most of the day and some of the nights.
The "Friends" wondered what kinds of programs we ought to have for today's youngsters and decided it might be well to ask you, the parents and grandparents.
The possibilities are endless. Would your youngsters enjoy a pint sized basketball game with balls and baskets their size? Would they like a story hour?
We have the Easter Egg Hunt coming up in April, but would it be fun to have a pre-Halloween party?
What about dance for little folks, or art - both ways to express themselves and enjoy the company of their peers. There could be little theater for the younger set and well, you name it. What do you think your children will find interesting?
Check in at the Friends e-mail address - email@example.com - and let us know. We can't do it all, but we would like to try something.
Note to writers - the next session of the Clearwater Beach Writers Group, sponsored by the Clearwater Beach Library, will be on Wednesday, March 4, from 1 to 3 p.m.. Bring something you have written and join the interesting interchange of ideas at the Clearwater Beach Recreation Center, located east of the tennis courts on Bay Esplanade.
