B’ville Pop Warner focuses on scholarship, safety
B’ville’s Pop Warner cheer and football teams have been going strong for more than 30 years. This year, 220 kids have signed up, many of them veterans of their teams. The children, who range in age from 5 to 15, gather in groups scattered across the Town of Lysander Park on Smokey Hollow Road four evenings a week to practice. Pop Warner doesn’t keep individual football statistics; as it says on B’ville’s website, “Pop Warner only recognizes the athletic accomplishments of the team, not the individual.”

Summer is speeding by, but there is still a lot to see and do at the library before those school buses start to roll. We’ve got crafts, games, art, trivia, technology, music and authors -- all for free. We even have our very own ComiCon from noon to 8 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 23, celebrating science fiction, fantasy, comics and cosplay. We may not be as big and famous as the coastal ComiCons but you can take your turn on the bridge of a virtual starship, chat with well-known comic authors, and dress as your favorite character and meet folks with similar interests without the hassles of packing and paying for an expensive trip. Sign up now on the library’s program page and get a T-shirt for a souvenir. Attendance is free, but bring your wallet because we have some fantastic artists and vendors you’ll want to visit.
