Teens invited to rock concert at Bingen park on Sept. 15

Party for celebration of reading

Teens (ages 12-19) are invited to help celebrate the White Salmon Valley Community Library's most successful Teen Summer Reading program to date!

Join others at the Bingen City park on Wednesday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. and enjoy the dynamic music of Cerulean Blue.

The library and the Klickitat County Health Department are co-sponsoring the event to thank local teens for a great summer of reading and to encourage teens to continue to make healthy choices throughout the year. Health Department funding for this program is through Prevention Dollars.

The much-anticipated "Summer Reading Drawing" will be held during the event. For every 10 hours a teen read for the 2004 Summer Reading Program, he or she earned a prize and one entry for the drawing. The grand prize, a $100 savings bond, has been donated by Helping Hands of White Salmon. Additional prizes will be provided by the library's Young Adult Advisory Board (YAAB), the Fort Vancouver Regional Library Foundation and the Health Department.

Preventions Specialists Dena Kline and Stacey Doss will also provide information on drug/alcohol abuse and tobacco prevention.

Admission is free with your Fort Vancouver Regional Library card. Library card applications will be available.

Cerulean Blue band members are Keegan Matosich (lead singer and rhythm guitar/keyboard), Evan Larsell (lead guitar, back-up vocals, keyboard), Paul Kline (bass), and Chad Hinman (drums). All are 2003 Columbia High School graduates and have been playing together for five years.

Their powerful and energetic songs are filled with flowing melodies and tight rhythms. Accomplishments include two CD releases and several Battle of the Bands placements in the Columbia River Gorge.

For more information call the library, 493-1132.
