The youth of Atkinson have pulled together and have WON the summer reading challenge! At the time of this press release there are well over 500 raffle tickets submitted between the children’s room and the teen jar. This means on the night of the finale there will be times during the night where the Youth Services Director will be in a designated space where registered summer reading participants (only) will have a chance to shoot water from toys we provide at Kathy. If your child doesn’t read the newspaper you can keep them in suspense as we will not announce it but we won’t lie if asked. ;)
SUMMER READING FINALE: ON your MARK, GET SET, it's time to PAR-TAY for the closure of summer reading. Pack up a picnic and the kiddos. Eat the light supper that you have prepared in the courtyard, learn some western line dancing with Gail Eaton and friends (SURE, wear your cowboy boots!), and we'll be serving delicious ice cream sundaes with a variety of great toppings at the break that you can choose from.
Register the entire family (all ages) so we have enough ice cream and toppings, and we can notify you should the venue change if the New England weather does not cooperate. Invite everyone as long as you account for them in the registration.
Also, we are having a very special guest invited that most of the littles will love—PETE THE CAT. Pete will be wandering through at some point and be able to pose for photos with children. He doesn’t talk, but he’s very friendly and understands gestures.
ROUGH Itinerary: (Supper on the back lawn anytime--use our outdoor seating or bring a blanket and/or lawn chairs so you can be comfy.) Arrive at 6 and stay until 7:45 and you won’t miss a thing!
- Demo dance 6:15 - 6:30pm
- Group lesson with event participants 6:30 - 7:00pm

As you are reading this you may wonder if you are childless if you are welcome. EVERYONE is welcome to register, the only portion of the evening slated for summer reading participants only will be soaking the Youth Services Director. Only the summer reading youth will be eligible.
