Do you know all your Local Library has to offer?

Libraries are often overlooked as places that can provide free or low-cost entertainment in the community. Here are 5 things you may, or may not, know about the Plymouth and Canton Libraries:

1. Need to brush up on basic computer skills or prepare for college entrance exams? Curious about digital photography or need to learn Powerpoint? Take a computer class. Both Plymouth and Canton libraries offer a wide variety of computer education classes.

2. You can use your library card to print a pass, at your home or at the library, to one of 60 participating museums across the state. The passes will give you either complimentary or reduced admission. Popular museums include Cranbrook Art Museum, the Holocaust Memorial Center and the Detroit Institute of Arts. These passes are available on the Plymouth District Library’s Michigan Activity Passes page

3. Don’t want to spend $10 going to a movie or a few dollars renting from Redbox? Check out the movie selection at the Plymouth and Canton libraries. You might be surprised to see many new releases and classic favorites.

4. Did you know that you can now rent e-books for your Kindle, Nook, iPad or tablet through the library? Both the Plymouth and Canton libraries have extensive e-book catalogs. You can search book titles and more on their websites.

5. Whether you want to join a book club, build Lego fortresses or learn to make bleach or Tye-dye shirts – the library has a class for you. Both libraries have calendars full of events for all ages. Check out what they have to offer and join in the fun.

P-CEP National Honor Society’s 3rd Annual Community Benefit 5K

The Plymouth-Canton Educational Park’s National Honor Society will host our third annual 5K on May 5, 2013 at 8:00am on the high school campus.  This event was created in 2011 in honor of sixteen year old P-CEP student, Jesse Lindlbauer, when a sinus infection turned into an abscess which ruptured, causing a traumatic brain injury. The SJ5K run was created in order to bring the community support to the family and raise money.

After a successful event in 2011, the National Honor Society decided to make the SJ5K an annual event to honor local families in need. This year, the race will support three P-CCS students. Our hope is to bring the community together to bring hope, support and necessary funds to the Plymouth-Canton community’s Jayden Gohl, Plymouth High School’s Erinne Williams, and Salem High School’s Max Merget.

 

Jayden Gohl was born with hydrocephalus, a rare medical condition in which fluid builds up in the brain. Jayden was not expected to live past 6 months, but he beat the odds and is now 4 years old. Jayden has been through 7 brain surgeries and countless doctor appointments. Jayden needs to be watched around the clock and his mother Lauren faces challenges providing for Jayden since she cannot have a full time job.

 

Erinne Williams is a 15 year old student at Plymouth High School and has lived with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a motor neuron disease similar to ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) since before her first birthday. Since her diagnosis, Erinne has been through nineteen pneumonias, eleven surgeries, and twenty one hospitalizations. She is confined to a wheelchair and forced to use a breathing machine.

 

Max Merget is a senior at Salem High School who has battled brain cancer since he was three. In January of 2013, Max was diagnosed with cancer for the fourth time. The previous three times Max beat the cancer, and he is optimistic about beating the cancer for a fourth time. Max loves baseball and has spent his time volunteering—especially for the new Mott’s Children’s Hospital—and has created a nonprofit foundation called maxyourbrain in conjunction with the University of Michigan to help raise money for cancer research. For more information, please visit www.MaxYourBrain.org.

 

Please join us to raise money and support for these three amazing students by participating in the SJ5K, donating funds, or sponsoring the race.  It will be held on Sunday, May 5th, 2013 at 8am beginning at the Canton Varsity Football Field.  Registration will begin March 4th and continue until race day; registrations received prior to April 5th will include a race shirt.  Registration forms can be found on the SJ5K Facebook page; on the P-CEP website; or, in Canton, Plymouth and Salem Main Offices.  Event fees are $25 for adults over 18 and $20 for all others. An optional $5 will be accepted for the maxyourbrain Foundation, as well as a bag of returnable cans on race day (just bring them with you—we will return and donate the money).

 

We will never turn down help!  For questions about the race or volunteering, please contact one of the two student coordinators for this year’s event. Devin Slominski can be contacted at devinslim@comcast.net and Madeline Viergutz can be contacted at sj5krun2013@gmail.com. For questions about becoming a sponsor, contact Andrew Kelty at Akelty28@yahoo.com. All donations and sponsorships can be made out to “NHS SJ5K 2013” and can be mailed to Pam Davis, 46370 Spinning Wheel, Canton, MI  48187.

 

You may also participate by cheering participants as a course safety volunteer; these positions will be posted on the following online sign up Google document beginning on March 17thhttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AkxDZkpOHrsmdGowbkRzdGJlUkxRTWdrX0M4UXA0cEE#gid=0%20%0D%0A
