What am I hyped about now? Aerial dance! If you haven't seen it, then it's like nothing you've ever seen. It’s not your mom's salsa or your dad's two-step.
Aerial dance involves dancers twisting, flinging, slithering, hanging and anything else they can do on fabric slings or trapezes. It takes a huge amount of physical strength and co-ordination to basically perform a dance in mid-air.
Summer is here, and it’s time to roll up your sleeves and tackle those long waited projects. While not every project is suitable for do-it-yourself (some of them do require experienced professionals), sometimes DIY really is easy and can amount to significant savings.
What should I read next? – When your favorite authors can’t write fast enough or heaven forbid, they die, you’re set adrift in an ocean of books with no compass to guide you. Don’t despair! Mid-Continent has great tools on our website to navigate you safely to your next favorite author.
This is the time of year that most people are working on their tans, although there are some organized people who are spending this time planning for the holidays. These are the people who make Christmas gifts, or do a lot of holiday entertaining. Now is the time to start those crafts! That way, November and December can be a time to enjoy the season instead of spending your time rushing around. Join us at the Antioch Branch for Christmas in July!
The Midwest Genealogy Center receives donations of many kinds, including school yearbooks. In fact, the only way the yearbook collection grows is through donations. Some time ago, we received a donation of a copy of a 1937 edition of Central High School’s Centralian. In the inside cover, there were two pictures. The first picture is of a bride and groom, and the second picture is of a small child.
