At the May 9 Minecraft Club, 20 kids went head-to-head in a fight for Minecraft survival. The players faced monsters, possible starvation and the cunning of other players.

In the end, the last man standing was 7-year-old Henry. He took home an Ender Dragon Statue and epic bragging rights. Congratulations, Henry.

Guest Blog: Historical dance troupe delights teen

By Syd Fillhardt, Campbell County High School Student

I attended a Macy’s Artwave program on February 27th with my mom. This program was put on by the Forget-Me-Not Historical Dance Company. I didn’t even know there was such a group!

I’m not a huge fan of dance, but I do appreciate the art of dance and all the hard work that goes into it. My mom pointed out this program was going to showcase historical dances performed at President William Howard Taft’s Inaugural Ball in 1909. Being a history lover, with an interest in U.S. Presidents, I thought this would be an interesting program to attend.

I have visited the Taft boyhood home in Cincinnati a few times and liked how the program related our 27th president. I was right. The dancers, decked out in period costumes, performed four dances that were used at President Taft’s Inauguration celebration.

I had no idea that period dances were something that could be researched, studied and performed. I was tired just watching them dance!

It was very interesting to see how the public danced in 1909, compared to today. I’m glad I attended this program, as it gave me a broader perspective of ArtsWave and the different variations of art that they support.

I’ve been a library supported for sixteen years and appreciate the knowledge that I’ve gained just by visiting the Campbell County Public Library. I look forward to what’s next at the library!

Syd is the daughter of CCPL Board Secretary Christie Fillhardt.
