This summer’s reading program, “A Universe of Stories,” which was held at the Charles Whitehead Public Library in Wewahitchka has successfully concluded. Many children from our local area as well as visiting children attended the bi-weekly programs. Attendees learned all about space, stars, planets and much more. During the programs, children listened to stories, played games, sang songs, and created fabulous crafts. To celebrate the success of the program, a galactic party was held on the last day of each program, where cupcakes, cookies, ice cream and punch were served. Each child was given a free book of their choice. Our top readers for the summer were awarded a free hardcover book of their choice.
We would like to thank the following for their contributions toward this year’s program: Deseret Cattle & Timber, Rich’s IGA, Dixie Dandy, and Manager Kelly Evans from Family Dollar. Also, we would like to extend a special thanks to our two teen volunteers, Catherine Bouington and Shelby Causey for their awesome assistance.
