Congratulations to all the participants of the Sunbeam Summer Reading Club for filling your summer with words: in all, over 30 kids read over 550 books, including 29 "classics", which were our feature! And thank you to all the donors, Dicke's Wicker and Cottage Crafts, the Yaceyko family, MV Camp Operations, Subway, Sammy's Family Restaurant, and VHQ; your generosity helped put a smile on the faces of many children this summer.
