Make a Splash – Read! focuses on the 2010 Summer Reading Program for children and teens. The day will be filled with great speakers and a visit to A Building for Kids, the Appleton Children’s Museum.
The Ethical Fitness Workshop, presented by Nancy Zimmerman and Veanna Baxter, will explore the issues and challenges to acting ethically. Participants will receive the Ethical Fitness workbook as part of their attendance.
You can also join in the fun with the 2nd Annual Book Cart Drill Team event which will be planned on a day with no conflicts so that we can all enjoy the skill and grace of the teams together and the laughter too.
