Thursday Aug. 26, The Horicon Free Public Library's Bedtime Stories & Treats and Adventures in Reading programs end for the season.
Well over 200 children have taken part in these summer reading programs during 2010.
Each week after the reading concludes, the children visited the firemen and examined their fire trucks and emergency equipment. Also, the children have enjoyed frog jumping contests, bug-catching competitions, competed in dinosaur chalk-drawing, and other activities.
To celebrate the end of the summer program, a Make Your Own Sundae party is scheduled, with all the ingredients provided by Stewart's Shops. All of the children in the program and their families plus the readers, volunteers, and members of the Friends of the Horicon Library are invited to attend.
The Friends have a full schedule of children's activities planned for fall. On Aug. 29, they are inviting everyone to attend a Hawaiian Luau at 2 p.m. in the pavilion behind the Horicon Town Hall. There will be limbo, hula hoop and hula dancing contests, sack races and other games and activities.
All those interested in attending this free program should call Barb Blum at 494-3357.
In September the Friends will have their annual study of the life-cycle of the Monarch Butterfly and in October there will be a pumpkin painting party. For details about these events and programs sponsored by the Friends of the Horicon Library, call Barbara Blum.
