This summer our "Star Readers" read an amazing 2,026 books during the months of June and July! Brice Ball received a certificate for the MOST books read!
The 2012 Summer Reading Program came to a close on July 26th with Daniel Poe of Creations with a Twist, who entertained over 100 people at the "Star Reader" final party! He wowed the audience with his balloon twisting expertise and brought life to the stories he told with assistance of members of the audience and their awesome balloon attire.
Children ate crunchy moon rocks and galaxy juice, AND THEN spent the dollars they had earned during the summer reading program on prizes.
During the program, each child received a paperback book, Blank Park Zoo pass, Breadeaux Pizza and Pizza Ranch pizza certificates, reading certificate, bookmarks, t-shirt, Dairy Queen certificate, and prizes. Claire Teusch won the GRAND PRIZE, a brand new bicycle! Caden Etherton won a prize for the Starry Night Punch Card Contest.
Thank you to the many volunteers who helped make the summer reading program a big success this year!
