If your young Whovian is looking for a most excellent way to start the New Year, it couldn’t be better than the Camas Library’s Dr. Who Fan Club for Teens, which meets on the the first Wednesday of every month from 4 to 5 p.m. The first meeting of 2016 will be at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 6. Normally, there are Who-themed games, trivia, snacks and crafts; but this time, Who-fans will be treated to “The Husbands of River Song,” shows on the big screen. This is the most recent Dr. Who Christmas special, which aired on the BBC on Christmas day 2015. BYOS! (Bring Your Own Snacks. Jelly Babies, anyone?)
Come in costume as any incarnation of The Doctor or his companions—Rose, Martha, Amy, Donna, River, Rory, or Jack, or whatever other obscure character you can find. Come as a Dalek but please, don’t exterminate anybody, although maybe you can make a soufflé (but where will you get the milk and eggs?). We dare you to come as the Face of Boe. The best costume wins a prize…and so does the person who’s wearing it.
The event is completely free, no registration is required, and it’s open to anyone entering seventh through 12th grades in any school district or with any home school organization. The evening is sponsored by the Friends and Foundation of the Camas Library. The library is located at 625 N.E. Fourth Ave. in downtown Camas.
