Rhonda Adelmund

It was hats-off to our Story Time kids last week with special guest presenter Rhonda Adelmund. Rhonda is well known around Parkersburg as the lady who wears the funny hats. If you happen to stop in Kwik Star, you will find her sporting one of her latest creations. The effect brings an instant smile on everyone’s face.

For Story Time, Rhonda brought several of her famous hats for the boys and girls to try on after reading a book about her favorite subjects:  hats. Each of the ones she brought were kid- appealing, including a Scooby-Do hat, Sesame Street hat and one that was covered with eyes. These one-of-a-kind creations are inspired by kids. Rhonda loves to visit the classrooms during the school year, where the suggestions that are given often times become a reality.

We want to thank Rhonda for making this a special Story Time morning!

Please join us this Thursday from 10-11:00. Tracy Huisinga will be our guest presenter.
