We’re having a Grand Opening Celebration of the new Ridgefield Library on July 9 from 10:30 am to 2 pm! You’re invited to this outdoor celebration for all ages as part of downtown Ridgefield’s Main Street Day. There will be activities for kids throughout the event, including an art bar, a balloon artist, and strolling performers. Storybook characters will be in downtown businesses, and families and kids will get a passport that can be checked off if they go in and talk to the character. When the card is full of stamps, the family brings it back to the library for Main Street moola or a book from the Friends group.
Events start at 10:30 am with a flag ceremony and speakers, followed by the ribbon cutting, Foundation donor presentation, and music from Fort Vancouver Pipe Band.
Ridgefield Lions will serve hot dogs to the first 150 people after the ceremony.
I encourage you to attend. It’s been a long haul and we owe a big round of applause to the Ridgefield community for helping raise the money to build this fine facility.
