Sum­mer read­ing pro­gram fun for all

The Southern Gazette - - NEWS -

The Burin Me­mo­rial Li­brary Sum­mer Read­ing for Fun pro­gram kicked off in full swing July 2 with 40 chil­dren par­tic­i­pat­ing.

Tu­tor Kim­ber­ley Rice of St. Lawrence and site co­or­di­na­tor Kait­lyn Jarvis of Lewin’s Cove were ea­ger to get started. The theme for this year’s sum­mer 2013 pro­gram was ‘Candy Land’, which was a huge hit. Ms. Rice in­di­cated “The kids re­ally loved our Candy Land Cas­tle.” The Tu­tors have planned ac­tiv­i­ties through­out the sum­mer. The first fun day was Candy Land Car­ni­val. It in­cluded pin the nose on the clown, face paint­ing, guess what’s in the mys­tery box, cas­tle fun, car­ni­val count, mask mak­ing, penny toss along with all the de­li­cious treats of a car­ni­val.

This month the tu­tors brought ‘Drive in Movie’ at the Candy Land Cin­ema to the pro­gram, in which ‘Her­bie Fully Loaded’ took the screen.

Chil­dren were given movie tick­ets at the door and cashed them in at the ac­tual con­ces­sion stand for lots of yummy treats in­clud­ing pop­corn, candy, bars, cup­cakes and lemon­ade.

Since this was a Drive in Movie, the par­tic­i­pants made their own cars that they loved. They also made fin­ger pup­pets, col­ored pic­tures and played bingo for cool prizes.

Last week the tu­tors planned ‘Christ­mas in July’, which fell on Fri­day and in­cluded dec­o­rat­ing a Christ­mas tree, Santa and presents, hot choco­late, dress­ing as mum­mers and other Christ­mas crafts.

Ms. Rice and Ms. Jarvis are very happy with the pro­gram and all the par­tic­i­pants. They are hav­ing a great sum­mer and re­ally en­joy all the kids, look­ing for­ward to the weeks to come.
