NORTHFIELD — The end of this year celebration for the Children's Summer Reading Program "Dig Into Reading" took place on August 24.
Of the 91 kids who participated in the program throughout the summer, thirty-three attended the final party where parents and kids snacked on muffins, grapes and punch. The kids then picked their final treasures from the prize bin, choosing one item for every five books read.
A total of 1532 books were devoured by budding bibliophiles and special recognition and awards went out to the top five readers: Bruce Archibald, brother and sister Becca and Ethan Turgeon, and sisters Harper and Nora Hartshorn. All the children received certificates from Pizza Hut for a personal pan pizza, and all children who pick up their list of books read and present it to Dipsy-Doodle will receive a free ice-cream.
