Explore Delaware's Trails Sun 6/26 10a-2pm

For those of you who frequent the Beehive, you know that we love cycling.  We have a bike hanging from our ceiling!  We partially sponsor a cycling team with our friends and neighbors at BreakAway on Sandusky. And you'll find tons of awesome books and magazines on cycling as well as Honey Stinger, BonkBreaker and Clif bars and such.

So it's no surprise that we are promoting getting out on your bike this summer.    Here's how:

  On Sunday 6/26 from 10a-2pm Friends of Sustainable Delaware and the cycling community of Delaware invite you to discover Delaware’s bike/walking paths.

We’ll have 4 stations providing maps, water, and cycling volunteers to lead you
(or you can go it alone).  
Look for a small table with our volunteers at the following locations:
1.  Mingo Park on the bike path by the river just south of the pool;
2.  Intersection of the Henry St. bike path & the east-west path near OWU’s new pool;
3.  Bicentennial Park Gazebo at S. Washington & Park behind the fire station on Liberty
4.  Trailhead near the Delaware Christian School Parking Lot at Belle Ave. & S. Sandusky St (just North of the 42 Overpass)

Pedal or walk at your own leisurely pace or kick up the pace a little.  You can cycle/walk for 15 minutes or 4 hours.  Just get out and meet us.  We hope you disover the joys of pedaling & walking around Delaware this summer!

Author Connie Currie Saturday 6/25 @ 4pm Katie Belle to the Rescue

Delaware author Connie E. Curry will read from her new children’s book Katie Belle to the Rescue, a humorous children’s book with a message about safety education.

Katie Belle is a loved, smart, and inquisitive little girl. In Katie Belle to the Rescue, she has the unexpected opportunity to roam free and takes advantage of her freedom. Ultimately, Katie Belle will help her mommy in a crisis—but not before she has the run of the house!

With twenty five years in EMS, Curry will also speak to children about safety, common injuries, and accident prevention at the reading and book signing. Families are encouraged to attend the event to share in Katie Belle’s fun adventures while learning about safety along the way.

Curry proclaims that much of her nonfiction humor is found right in her own home and backyard. As a mother of three, Connie and her husband, Dave, also have a granddaughter. Connie turns the struggles and adventures of raising her children into laughter through words, drawing on actual events in portraying Katie Belle.

Curry is the recipient of the James Thurber Annual Humor Contest award, and has written for numerous magazines. She has worked as a columnist and is the author of Give Me Back My Glory, which motivated her to speak at various women’s groups about breast cancer. She is a member of the Write Life Writing Group, the Delaware Writing Group, and Ohio Writer. She is the proud owner of a 1974 Volkswagen, which she assisted in restoring, and Graham, her golden retriever, is always by her side.
