Summer program ready to launch
All children from ages 4 to 14 can soon sign up to have lots of fun at the Thurman Summer Youth Program which begins July 11. Sessions are held Monday through Friday on the field behind the Harris House, from 9 a.m. to noon. Children need to have papers signed authorizing trips and specifying guardians in case of an emergency. Each day there might be games, crafts, contests, reading and gardening. Snacks are provided and are usually donated by good friends and neighbors. The children routinely take trips once a week to fun places and new adventures. Parents or guardians are responsible for rides to and from the program.
