Local Author Brian Lies will be Guest at Inly's Sundaes & Stories Event

Here’s a new twist for this year! The Inly Parents Group is hosting Sundaes & Stories, a social event for Inly families on Sunday, September 13, from 2-4 p.m. Connect and reconnect as you celebrate being back at school and:

  • Hear familiar and new stories read aloud
  • Create on-the-fly interpretations of story through craft, movement, or music
  • Participate in a rock opera
  • Enjoy some ice cream and togetherness as a community!

In addition to make-your-own sundaes, we have another special treat: local author Brian Lies will read from his Bat books!


Want to get involved?
We’d love to scoop up some volunteers to:

  • Read pre-selected books aloud to groups of kids by level (some of our book choices so far include The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Pete’s a Pizza, The Red Lemon, How I Spent My Summer Vacation, When Dinosaurs Came with Everything, Guji Guji, Where the Wild Things Are, and more…)
  • Lead story-related arts, crafts, and songs
  • Create an arts-on-the-spot atmosphere by bringing your own instrument. Sit under a tree and strum your guitar!
  • Set-up and/or clean-up

Please contact Sarah MacPherson to indicate your interest in being involved.

This year’s festival is FREE, open to Inly families only, and is a parent-led event presented by the Inly Parents Group. Please make it a family affair and keep an eye on your own kids, as this is not a drop-off event.

What did you read this summer?
Bring a book to drop in a swap basket, but make sure you take one with you!
