Up to 5 fossil-hunters can stuff the $25 fossil bag. Call 241.9674 for more information.

Sunday, July 17 at 4:00, Charmichael's welcomes biographer Michael Sims who will speak on his new book, The Story of Charlotte's Web: E.B. White's Eccentric Life in Nature and the Birth of an American Classic. Sims delved into the childhood and spider research of White to find the inspiration for his classic children's stories. Bring the kids to hear about the real tales of Charlotte, Wilbur, and Templeton.

St. Agnes Carnival

At St. Agnes, the annual picnic isn't enough, they've gotta have a carnival. This Friday and Saturday (July 15-16), saunter down to St. Agnes on Newburg Rd. for some good old-fashioned Catholic fun. Beer, the cake and quilt wheels, gambling, live entertainment, a parade and midway rides are a few of the activities available at this immensely popular annual event.
