Greenwood Festival
The Greenwood Mennonite School will be holding its 17th Annual Greenwood Spring Festival on Saturday, June 7, on the school grounds. The day begins with an old-fashioned, all-you-can-eat breakfast, 7:30 a.m. until 10 a.m. At 9 a.m. the outdoor booths open featuring hundreds of items including fresh-made foods, donuts, crab cakes, handcrafted items, antiques, books, new and used kids items, plants; plus a petting zoo, rides, and a quilting demonstration. Antique tractors will also be featured this year, along with the popular Spring Festival Auction. All proceeds from the Greenwood Spring Festival benefit the 75-year-old Greenwood Mennonite School, the longest-running Mennonite elementary school in the Untied States. GMS offers quality Christian education for grades k-12, with the current enrollment just under 300 students. The school is located on Mennonite School Road, between Routes 16 and 36, east of Greenwood.

B’ville Summer Reading
Bridgeville Public Library will hold a Summer Reading Program beginning June 10. All children will want to sign up for the program this summer. Karen Johnson, youth services librarian, has scheduled some great programs and fun activities; there are lots of reading prizes to give away, and there are many new books to read. Each child reading for prizes should have a Sussex County Library Card, and check out all books from the Bridgeville Library. Anyone is welcome to attend the activities or programs scheduled. These are held in the Parish Hall at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church on Williams Street. All of the programs start at 11 a.m. and should last about an hour-and-a-half. If a child is just visiting for a few weeks, we can give him/her a temporary card for the Summer Reading Program. Sign up and start reading for prizes on June 10.
