Water Fights with Spencer Fire Department!
Thursday, June 29th at 2:00 pm
Come prepared to get soaked, because we are going to have a wet and wild time! Spencer Fire Department will be joining us and bringing a truck for these water fights. Along with getting hosed down, we will be having water balloon/bucket relay races, "painting" with squirt guns, and much more! Activities will take place in the parking lot south of the library. If you bring your own squirt gun, please mark it with your name.
