HORN LAKE, Miss. – Sheldon walked into the M. R. Dye Public Library on Saturday June 17, 2013 ready to talk to astronauts about the RiverKings.

Area ham radio and telegraph experts were at the M.R. Dye Public Library teaching kids (and Sheldon) how to use these instruments. It even featured a chance to speak with astronauts on the International Space Station as it passed over the area.

“We think it’s fantastic that Sheldon could visit us on such an exciting day of learning and fun!” First Regional Library Youth Specialist Carson Culver said.

The library will host a Ham Radio Field Day on Saturday, June 22, 2013 and is open to the public. Call 662-393-5654 for more information on this and other events happening this summer.

If you would like Sheldon to make a visit to your school or organization, please contact Caitlyn Hutchins (communitydevelopment@riverkings.com) or call 662-342-1755.
