Fiber Optics in HalseyYou may see construction work starting to happen in the right of ways on and around West 3rd Street. There have been surveyors out and about, and line locates drawn on the streets and right of ways. Alyrica, an Internet Service Provider out of Philomath, will be installing fiber optic cable in Halsey. The project is expected to take about two years and will eventually reach every house. This will allow them to offer high speed internet more reliably and inexpensively to Halsey residents. Please be cautious driving near construction areas, for everyone’s safety. Thank you!
Summer Reading Program Wrap-up:Storyteller/Musician Rich GlauberThe Halsey City Library Summer Reading Program will host its final event in the Veterans Memorial Park next to the Library on Saturday, August 13th at 10:00 am. There will be ice cream, awards for participation and most minutes read during the program, and a live performer! Rich Glauber is a gifted troubadour/music educator who specializes in creating interactive musical experiences for participants of all ages. His performance is called ‘Music in Action!’ an upbeat mix of songs, creative movement, storytelling and comedy, all imbued with a healthy dose of good, clean fun. Using guitar, voice and his special, antique accordion (named Syd), Glauber effortlessly places the group into the palm of his hand, then conducts a free-wheeling celebration of community spirit and youthful enthusiasm. Many of his songs are action-oriented, with opportunities for high-energy movement and creative expression. If you have kids, if you don’t, if you are a kid, whether or not you’ve participated in the summer reading program, come to this event. Everyone is welcome. Enjoy Rich’s music and stories, have some ice cream, and clap for the kids who’ve been reading hard all summer long. Everyone is welcome!
