2014 Frozen Fun Fest and Winter Book Fair
The Friends of the Library of Windham (F.L.O.W.) hosted a Frozen Fun Fest and Book Sale event at the Nesmith Library on Saturday, March 8th, 2014. The library was transformed into a Frozen Winter Wonderland filled with games and activities based on the movie “Frozen”. There was snowman building, snow flake decorating, snowball tossing, a sled race and lots of other fun games and activities. Windham High School art students were also on hand to teach the children how to draw the characters from the movie. Many children even come dressed as their favorite character from Frozen. The children were thrilled by the special appearance of Frozen Queen Elsa! Thank you to our sponsors Party Palace for bringing Elsa to the event, A.J. Letizio for donating the delicious snacks and to Chris Baker from Wendy's for donating the Frostys! Also thanks to our many volunteers including Boy Scout Troops 263 and 266, the Girl Scouts, Windham High School and Windham Middle School students. It was a fun filled day! More photos with Elsa can be viewed at Party Palace's web page located here. Jim Robidoux from Distinctive Images Photography took all the great shots of the kids with Elsa!
