Can you believe the summer is almost over? Neither can we!  To celebrate the end of another great year, a large crowd of 160 people attended the Grand Finale organized by the TD 2019 Summer Reading Club.  Young and old had fun in the inflatable structures, enjoyed carnival games and feasted on hot dogs and hamburgers courtesy of M&M Meat Shops.  Participants had the opportunity to cuddle some farm animals and the rats seemed to be the crowd favourite! Old friends as well as new friends were able to hang out one last time before the end of the summer.  Let’s not forget the amount of reading that happened by our young participants. Over 250 Club members read 110,024 pages during the summer – what a great accomplishment!

We would like to congratulate our two winners; Jasmin Benatuil and Chaehyun Shim who won the grand prizes this year. We would also like to thank the parents, children, Library staff and members of the City of Clarence-Rockland for their enthusiasm, participation and support throughout the summer. Although yesterday marks the end of this year’s Club, our Leaders hope to see you soon. Don’t be shy and come say hello if you see them throughout the year!

Finally, Oasis would like to thank you for accompanying her on this summer’s crazy adventure! Her goal was to introduce you to different parts of Clarence-Rockland, and she hopes you visited some of them. We look forward to seeing you next year for another summer full of surprises. Enjoy the rest of your summer break and we wish you a great start to your school year.
