Summer Reading started in Wednesday, June 5, 2019 with a visit from Grandpa Pokey. Kids we asked to come and sign up for summer reading and them they all got to go in the other room and get a balloon from Grandpa Pokey.

We has since then just took off running. The younger kids have made NASA Badges, Jet Packs and had a Balloon Rocket Race. All the kids made Father’s day crafts.

The Teens have made stress balls, paper lantern planets, painted moons, played with water rockets and tie dyed.

The Adults also painted moons, made pop bottle planters, and painted galaxy sun catcher plated.
