Summer Reading Program has finished and the pool party will be Saturday, July 27. Dan summarized the
programs and which were the most attended. Reading logs with weekly prizes were very successful.
Special programs and preschool programs were both well attended. Toddler program was not well
attended but Susan felt it was worth doing even in a small group. Elementary program was not well
attended and would probably not be done again.
The art times were fair to good attendance and Susan plans to try it again. ICN programs would not be
done in the future unless Tiger PACK was interested. Lego time was very popular and would definitely
do again. And the Family Hour was not well attended and would not do again.
