United Way and Katahdin Trust Announce Summer Reading Celebration

United Way of Aroostook (UWA) and Katahdin Trust Company are pleased to be hosting a Summer Reading Celebration for all children in the County!

This fun-filled event takes place on Weds., July 19th, from 10AM-12PM at the Fort Kent Elementary School.  The event is an extension of the Summer Slide Backpack Program coordinated by UWA in partnership with Katahdin Trust.  Summer Slide provided all Aroostook County first graders with a backpack and three books for summer reading, all in the hopes of encouraging children to read throughout the summer to curb the “summer slide” of reading skills and to promote literacy.

The fun-filled Summer Reading Celebration on July 19th will include a bouncy house, “Toenails and Tattoos” parlor, games, prizes, arts and crafts, face painting, book giveaways, and more.  There will also be some character visitors!

Volunteers from Katahdin Trust Company and the Fort Kent Rec Department employees will be on hand to help United Way of Aroostook make this event run smoothly.  Put it on your calendar to attend this fun, children’s summer event.
