Our actual programs began this week, and we can definitely say they started off with a bang! Great numbers for story times, tweens/teens, and family programs. This morning we had our first performer, Tall Paul the Magician. If anyone in NM is looking for a great show, we highly recommend him. We had him two years back, and all week Sheridan and Christopher have been starting conversations with, "Do you remember when he...?"
As you can see, we had a big crowd, just stretching the limits of our last remaining shade tree. Fortunately, there are plans to put a pergola over the patio area just behind it, so next summer we should have almost double the shade area.
Tall Paul has just the right level of goofiness to keep kids in stitches.
He makes much use of volunteers, which of course is always a crowd pleaser.
and the crowd was definitely pleased!
In fact, I spent most of the show just zooming in on smiling faces.
Thanks for a great start to the summer, Tall Paul!
