It is not too late to sign up
You can sign your child up through July 8, 2013, for the children’s summer program, and enjoy some of the upcoming activities. For every 5 hours of reading up to 15 hours kids get prizes like a free one time pass to the pool, a RiverRat ticket, tshirt and more! First Bank Richmond is donating money towards the Backpack Blessings program, for feeding kids during the school year, each time a child reads five hours. Children can decorate a lunch bag which will go to a child this Fall.
The summer program ends on July 13th and on July 15th a big celebration, for all the children who read 15 hours or more, will take place at the library.
So get your kids up to Morrisson Reeves and start some summer reading. (If you live in Centerville- they also have a great summer reading program and are teaming up with MRL for some fun events).
Thanks to all of the Morrisson Reeves partners for this and other great events for the kids on our community.

Elephant ears, funnel cakes, walking tacos…..okay that’s what I think of first when I think of the Fair. Next, I picture the 4H kids working hard on their projects or with their animals. And then I think of the sounds…live music, laughter, animal noises, the sizzling of hot sausage on the grill… and I’m back to the food again. <sigh>
Whatever your reasons for loving the Fair- come on out and enjoy! Free concerts on the Tom Raper RV Stage will be going on throughout the week, Poor Jacks Amusement rides start on June 22, the exotic petting zoo is back, the one man band, fireworks and the mechanical bull- plus much more!!
Check out the full schedule and make sure you don’t miss a thing. We’ll be out and about through the week taking pictures- so don’t miss the photo op while you are having fun at the Fair! See you there.
If you are looking for a couple of fun, free, family events, here are a couple of great ideas for June!
Coming soon you can enjoy both an Amazing Walk and Hook a Kid on Fishing. For more information on these great events you can read the flyers below.
