Children's Summer Reading Party - Wed. 8/8, 5-7 pm

Our kids have definitely taken this year's summer reading slogan to heart. We have signed up 411 kids who have collectively read 3,127 hours (so far)!!

To celebrate the HUGE success of this year's program we've decided to shake things up a little ;) We are going to have an outdoor party, held on the field behind Centre School on Wednesday, August 8, 5-7 pm. We will have live music, games, face-painting and more! We will have some carnival-type snacks, including popcorn and cotton candy and bottled water. At the end we will have raffle off 3 Kindles for our summer reading participants.

If you're planning to attend, please give us a call and sign up so we'll have an idea of how many people to expect (926-4729). Feel free to bring a blanket or chairs and pack a picnic, since the party will be right at dinner time!

Additional info: Summer reading logs are due on Wednesday, Aug. 8 by Noon. If you're interested in helping out with the party we still need about 7 or 8 volunteers (we'll need help with games/booths, setup and breakdown). Also, we are accepting donations of of bottled water and prizes for the games. The prizes should be non-peanut penny candy (like dum-dums, tootsie rolls, etc.) and small prizes like plastic rings, stickers, etc. Please call the Children's Room at 926-4729 or email Wendy at if you would like to volunteer or make a donation.
