Throughout history there have been many different warriors – men and women who fought bravely to protect the countries they loved. Learn about different warriors throughout the ages. We will be looking at clothing, weapons, and daily life. Have fun with us as we learn to joust, launch a catapult, and even try some food! Our Saturday Samplers are monthly family friendly workshops catered towards small children.
Mike Hemmelgarn’s 45-minute program incorporates ventriloquism, juggling, balloons, a touch of magic and audience participation. Hemmelgarn has been fascinated with ventriloquism since the age of eight and juggling since the age of sixteen. He sold newspaper subscriptions door to door to earn money to purchase his first “dummy”, a hardwood puppet named “Bob”. He learned to juggle with tennis balls and has evolved to bowling balls, garden weasels, and even juggles a bowling ball, apple and a plunger…while eating the apple! This program is sponsored by the Bartholomew County Library Associates.
