Story

When this column appears in the Pelham News it will be August 7th and almost the last day of the summer children's programs. There will be one segment of Mad Science, namely Lights, Colour, Action, on August 12th and the end of the Summer Reading Club that same week. The Reading Club BBQ--children who signed up for the Club will get a free hot dog or hamburger and a drink--will be at noon on Friday August 15th. The only other event, which is open to both children and adults/seniors, is the Ice Cream Social and involves making ice cream in a baggie and then consuming the result. Delicious!
