Silver City hosting two events

Silver City’s Misty VanHavel will combine story time with movement and sign language to share ideas about increasing reading readiness in preschoolers and kindergartners.

The workshop will be 10 a.m. Friday at the Silver City Schoolhouse for children ages 3 to 6 and their parents. A light snack will follow the free workshop.

On Saturday, Silver City will host a fair from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Silver City Park, corner of High and 2nd streets.

The fair will include live music by performers including Will and Sheree Rose, a cake walk, face painting and watermelon and lemonade. There is no fee to enter and small fees for children’s games.

Teens involved in the Comstock Youth Works summer job skills program also will be selling plant terrariums to raise additional funds for the Silver City Community Garden and Compost, which is funded in part by Silver City Task Force, Healthy Communities Coalition, Community Chest and volunteer donations.
