Hurricanes Diane and Earl tango over the Atlantic (August 29, 2010)

Okay, all together now.  We can DO this. 

“Double rainbow, double rainbow, double rainbow! 

Puppies and kittens and teenagers in cosplay!”

Earl, Earl go away, come again some…NO, just go away!

We’ve already had our flood (thanks to Tropical Storm Hanna), and we’ve been through our fire…wasn’t this year supposed to have been a plague of some sort?  Peeper frogs, perhaps?

Okay.  So here’s the deal.  If you’re on the coast, you might want to batten down the hatches  .   Librari-Con will go on as scheduled unless County offices are closed, but since we should be saying “Goodbye, Earl” early Friday morning according to NOAA, I think we’ll have ourselves a wonderful time on Saturday.  No worries!  🙂

See you at the Con,

Always,

Missy

Read The Fayetteville Observer’s article on our community’s participation in the Butterfly Project. 

One teen was inspired to create a butterfly because she’d read “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank, which is heartening; That kind of cause and effect fills me with hope.  After all, this project is inspired by the book “I Never Saw Another Butterfly: Children’s Drawings and Poems from Terezín Concentration Camp, 1942-1944” by Hana Volavkova (ed).

You can submit your own butterfly for the exhibit, too.  If you live in Cumberland County, NC, drop one off at any branch location before May 31st.  If you’d like to send yours in separately or if you live anywhere else in the US or abroad, details are available on the official project website for the Holocaust Museum Houston

Always,

Missy

1,500,000 innocent children died in the Holocaust. In an effort to remember them, Holocaust Museum Houston is collecting 1.5 million handmade butterflies. The butterflies will eventually comprise a huge exhibition, currently scheduled for Spring 2013, for all to remember. The Museum has already collected an estimated 400,000 butterflies.

The Cumberland County Public Library & Information Center will be hosting all-ages craft-ins at select library locations for the “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” activity in order to create as many handmade arts-and-crafts butterflies as possible during the month of April. Anyone who cannot attend one of the programs is encouraged to create a butterfly before May 31 and drop it off at any library location. All contributions submitted through the library will be delivered to the Holocaust Museum Houston as a group.  See our gallery on Flickr.

•Butterflies should be no larger than 8 inches by 10 inches.
•Butterflies may be of any medium the artist chooses, but two-dimensional submissions are preferred.
•Glitter should not be used.
•Food products (cereal, macaroni, candy, marshmallows or other perishables) also should not be used.

For questions or additional information, please e-mail butterflyproject@hmh.org .

If you wish to submit your butterfly individually, further guidelines and a submission form may be obtained online at the Holocaust Museum Houston’s official website.

This project is inspired by the book “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” Children’s Drawings and Poems from Terezin Concentration Camp 1942–1944 by Hana Volavkova (Editor).

For more information on The Days of Remembrance established by the United States Congress to commemorate the Holocaust and the liberation of the concentration camps by the Allied forces, please visit the official website. This year Holocaust Remembrance Day is Sunday, April 11.
