The sign-up for the
Summer Reading Program (SRP), “Make a Better World,” has already
begun. With special programs planned throughout the summer, ending
on August 25th, this is a great way to keep the kids engaged with
reading, learning and fun—all related to “Make a Better World.”
Each child will be given a booklet containing ideas for possible
ways to improve the world. They will be expected to do some of
them. Satisfactory completion of the SRP results in a free game at
Chuckster’s and an ice cream at Frekey’s--fun and delicious results
for a summer of fun. In addition, the following activities, for
which registration is required, have been planned:
July 12, 3:30 p.m.—Local
author and illustrator, Professor Cookie, will read her book, The
Lie. Kids will then explore developing and drawing a character of
their own. Older kids will learn how to create and develop a story
board. These activities will spur the imaginations and creativity
of the participants.
July 27th, at 10:30
a.m.—The Audubon Society will be at the library to teach us about
local birds. In addition, the kids will be making a seed ball to
take home and to feed the birds.
August 7th, at 7 p.m.—The
ever-popular Lego Derby is scheduled for the Grange. Our continued
thanks to Bob Shaw, who makes this happen.
August 12th, at 9:30
a.m.—Making sweet rolls—YUM—will be facilitated by the Teen Advisory
Group. This fun time will be held at the Chichester Safety Complex,
with the fruits (or rolls) of the kids’ efforts will be shared with
the Police and Fire Departments.
For those who
participate, or are interested in participating, in the activities
of the Memory Café, it will be meeting on July 10th, 2:30 p.m. at
the Northwood Lake Beach (54 Lake Shore Drive). People can either

your trails project requires professional help.
