Fountain Hills Library plans two family events for fall

Fountain Hills Branch Library has two family friendly events scheduled for late October and early November.

The library plans to do its part for Make a Difference Day by creating blankets in the Blanket Bee for Project Linus, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24. The event will be held in the library’s Reading Lounge.

Volunteers of all ages will create tie fleece blankets, crochet edge fleece blankets, knit blocks and coloring quilt blocks for children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need. All finished products will be donated to Project Linus.

Linus will make a guest appearance sometime during the three-hour hour event, according to a press release.

Anyone who wishes to donate materials or supplies for Project Linus can do so at the event. For more information about how to get involved, call 602-652-3000.

At 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 5, 12-year-old Adrian Valdes, and five other teens who make up the band ‘Tiggers’ will perform their first concert in Centennial Circle at the library.

The band is led by singer, songwriter, and multi-talented musician, Scott Hallock.

For the past several weeks Mr. Hallock has been coaching and mentoring the teens in instrumentation and performance in preparation for their musical debut.

Band members include: Adrian Valdes, 12, Amira Beck, 15, Daniel Quan, 12, Fallon Smith, 14, Joey Raco, 18, Logan Derksen, 16, and Scott Hallock, who has been performing more than 30 years.

The seven-member band will be jamming to such classic rock songs as “Knocking on Heaven’s Door” and “Feelin’ Alright,” the release stated.
