Queen City Creamery & Deli
Celebrate Urban Birds – 2009 Events
In addition to our normal plantings around the main store we did the following:
- Across the alley we had additional plantings and a bird bath.
- We assumed responsibility for a “Planter Box” on the Downtown Mall that included the plantings, a bird bath, and a sign.
- To distribute seeds packets and plantings, we held a “Plant Day” on the weekend of June 6th.
Visits were made to each of the six county libraries with the Allegany Arts Council Arts Bus in conjunction with the summer reading programs – Be Creative @ Your Library ( ages 5 – 12 ) and Express Yourself @ Your Library ( ages 12 and up).
During the 2 hour visits participants either made a bird from a paper bag and various supplies or colored a bird. While groups of eight were on the bus, others participated in programs inside the library or had their ice cream cone!
Participating libraries included: Georges Creek Branch, Frostburg Branch, LaVale Branch, Westernport Branch, Main Library, and South Cumberland Branch.
Each Library event was at an information/distribution location for the Celebrate Urban Birds project. Each location was also a display area for the arts projects submitted.
Each person who submitted a completed data collection form received a free ice cream cone from the Creamery!
