Linwood News

Linwood Library to host a Science City show

Science City from the Union Station will stop by the Linwood Library with its Force and Motion show starting at 6:30 p.m. April 6. This is an all-ages show that allows viewers to see how interesting science can be. The show will explore the often invisible yet amazing forces of physics. The concepts of gravity, centripetal force energy and collisions are explained using bouncing basketballs, pinning wheels and upside down water glasses.

City News

The city will be flushing the hydrants on Friday, so if residents notice any discolored water they are advised to let the tap run for a few minutes to help the lines clear out. If discoloration persists, please report to City Hall.

150th celebration

The Celebration Committee for the upcoming 150th celebration is looking for the oldest lifelong resident of Linwood (either city or rural). This resident will be recognized in the celebration parade later in June. Contact City Hall with any ideas.

Kindergarten roundup

Kindergarten Roundup at Linwood Elementary School is set for April 12 and 13, but a parent meeting will take place at 7 p.m. Monday. Those with children ready to start school in the fall should contact the Elementary School at 913-724-2323 for more information.
