It’s Birthday Month at Aurora Hills!
On Saturday, May 14, the Aurora Hills Branch Library celebrated 90 years of service to the community with a bang-up birthday bash.
Festivities included a beautiful vanilla cake (with a delicious layer of vanilla pudding), popsicles from the Dairy Godmother (owner Liz Smith signed up for her very first library card at the Aurora Hills branch when she was a little girl), and a crowd-pleasing performance / dance lesson by vintage dance troupe Fidgety Feet, who energized the crowd and got them dancing to the Charleston – the signature step of the 1920s.
And our friends at Arlington Car Free Diet added to the excitement with balloons and birthday hats, which party-goers young and old donned for the occasion.
The celebration continues through the end of June, with a display of historical mementos and trivia highlighting Arlington in the 1920s when the Aurora Hills branch was founded, presented by Mark Benbow, museum director of the Arlington Historical Society. Stop by to check out the interactive exhibit, and test your knowledge of Arlington County history.
Here’s to another 90 years!
