Current and Near Future Activities

She is creating a Youth Activity Book as a complement to the Shire's family activities. Though it is somewhat small now, she will continue to add content. The first draft contains an 'event bingo' page, word search, maze, picture match, cross word, hidden image, word maker, and coloring pages. Though this first iteration is focused on younger audiences, a second book aimed at teens will follow.

As an extension of the office of Chronicler, she hopes to provide Shire-created content on a variety of topics for all ages in future. Her dream is to have a fully-stocked 'roving' library as a resource at events, complete with a large original and custom content selection.
