Summer Begins

Mark the calendar and plan to attend this year’s family summer reading program “Get On Your Mark, Get Set, Read” during July and August. This year’s theme is all about teamwork, good nutrition, and exercise.

Our first session will be Thursday, July 28th, at 10:00 A.M. at the First National Bank Annex on Main Street in beautiful downtown Hope. Milford Nature Center will share stories featuring real live animals. Bring the whole family to see what creatures they will bring this year!

Our second meeting will be Thursday, August 4th, at 10:00 A.M. again at the Annex. Our program will be local Hope resident Nancy Lorson showing us how to be “The Best Me Possible”. Nancy, a certified aerobics instructor, has something very special planned for all ages. Join us to find out what the surprise is!

Our third and last event will be Thursday, August 11th, also at 10:00 A.M. at the Annex. We are excited to have someone from the Dickinson Soil Conservation District office come to share things from our local environment that go along with our theme. You will be amazed!

Sign-up for the Hope Community Library summer reading program will be on-site at the first session. Please come and join us to discover what “Get On Your Mark, Get Set, Read” is all about. SEE YOU IN THERE!
