A FEW TIPS ON FIRE PREVENTION FROM CHIEF CRAWFORD:
1. Sunmer is a gcx3d time to have your chimney checked and cleaned. Also, make sure^^
the chimney is capped to prevent birds or animals from nesting there.
2. A reminder that there is a burning ordinance in Pine Knoll Shores. You must
have permission from the Fire Department to burn trash, brush, etc. Have a hose at
the site and supervision is required until the fire is completely out.
3. PROPERTY CAN BE REPLACED - LIVES CANNOT. If you smell smoke in your house -
call inmediately. Get out of the house. If possible, cut off the main electrical switch.
Stickers for windows and doors are available at Town Hall to assist the Firemen
in identifying rocans where small children or invalids are located.

FOR THE YOUNGSTERS
If your kids like to read — or even if they think they don't — there is fun in
store for them by participation in the Sunmer Reading Game sponsored by the Regional
Library and conducted at seme branches, including Bogue Banks Library.
This year it is called "Soar into Reading". It's for all children in Kindergarten
through Sixth Grade. It begins on July 1st and will continue through July 27th. The
program will include weekly story hours featuring puppet shows, story-telling, crafts,
movies and special guests.
Every child who reads at least 10 books in the required categories during July will
receive a certificate signed by Governor Martin. Prizes will be awarded to those who
read 5 books, 10 books, 20 books, 30 books, 40 books, 75 books and 100 books!
For more information call the Library at 247-4650.
