In addition to hosting a full slate of events this month, El Progreso Memorial Library will continue to showcase (and sell) art from Toni Ward’s estate.
Among several events planned this month, Liz Welsh will lead the opera chats discussion Saturday at 11 a.m. Welsh plans to focus on “Madame Butterfly,” which library director Mendell Morgan calls a tragic love story of an abandoned Japanese war bride.
Next Wednesday, Uvalde Volunteer Fire Department members will be on hand with trucks and equipment for a special story hour beginning at 10:30 a.m. The event is scheduled in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 8-14.
Next Thursday, Oct. 12, will be particularly busy, with two meetings and a music event planned.
First on Thursday, the library will host the El Progreso Club meeting 4 p.m. State Rep. Tracy O. King will give an update on laws affecting rivers and trees. The program is open to the public, and there is no charge for admission.
