and the Library Board and Staff for allowing their facilities to be used to host meals.

Thanks also to grant from Baehr Foundation–First Option Bank Trust for funds to help provide Entertainment Wednesdays and other Summer Reading activities which are in addition to the summer lunch program.

Thanks also to a Summer Reading Grant from Dollar General to work with early literacy activities and games for use during summer lunch and summer reading.

We have 3 people signed up so far to participant in Career Tuesdays (sharing with the children during lunch about your job):  Dr. Lindsey Jaccard, chiropractor, Jada Hodgson, attorney, pastor, writer, and Kim Ryan, nursing.  I still need more volunteers to share their careers with kids on Tuesdays.
