London roundup this weekend
This is a super quick Friday roundup of events in and around London, Ontario this weekend. I don’t usually do this but as I tallied up all the things happening here this weekend I began to get really excited and wondered what I will have to forego as a result of a jam packed social schedule. So here it is: a very big craft show starts today at Western Fair and runs all weekend. Also there at the same time in the special events building is the annual London public library Friends of the Library book sale. I have never been but apparently you can buy a bag for $3 and fill it up with as many used books as you want. Happy Reading! (All weekend unless the books sell faster than anticipated.) The Babies, Tots and You show runs at Carling Heights Community Centre only on Sunday from 11 to 4 p.m.. It promises to be exciting and a great chance to see new products and services for parents. A workshop for children aged 8 to 12 is scheduled for the London Regional Children’s Museum on Saturday the 24th. The cost is $30 and youth will be able to build their own telescope with an astronomer. The Thames Valley Parent Involvement forum is also being held at the board of education on Dundas Street Saturday only from 8:30 a.m. registration required. Keynote speaker is Peter Jaffe, and the topic is media’s influence on children. Last year I attended this event and it was a useful forum for parents seeking involvement with their child’s school and was also helpful in ascertaining where priorities are for various schools.
