Mummies invade Evelyn Meador!

On Wednesday mummies invaded the Evelyn Meador Library! Well... not real mummies, so much as toilet paper roll mummies brought to you by the creative imaginations of local kids and tweens. With a spent paper roll, construction paper, glue, and a hand full accessories, Wednesday's craft was a great success. Be sure to stop by for our next kid craft (usually the forth Wednesday of every month).

Evelyn Meador Iaido Event in the The Bay Area Observer!

The Evelyn Meador Library's Iaido demonstration, featuring performances by Emily Egan Sensei of Clear Lake Iaido and her outstanding students, and your's truly, Ash Welborn of Shin Shin Ryu Iaijutsu, was a great success!

Egan Sensei and I are looking forward to next year's demonstration.
