Marigolds in May

IMG_0629IMG_0630

Two of Stanley’s master gardeners, Mary Domaskin and Brenda Jorgenson of the Mountrail County Garden Club, held a fun planting activity at the Stanley Public Library for students in grades K-6 on Tuesday, May 14.  They aided the students through the process of planting marigold seeds in a small pot.  They then showed the students how a planted seed would look once it came up and had several colors of  marigolds in their final blooming stage.  The students took their planted seeds home, along with a blooming marigold they repotted.

The event was sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

During the month of April, the Stanley Public Library held a Reading for Rewards contest for students in grades 7-12.  The students checked out books, read and returned them for an entry into the contest.  The winner for April was Devon Anthony, who read a book titled “Plague.”  Devon won a $25 VISA gift card sponsored by Braddock Insurance.  Congratulations to Devon and to all the students who read a book to enter the contest!
