[Michlib-l] Summer Reading @ Your Park opportunity

Our library took advantage of this LoM/DNR collaboration (see below) for
our Summer Reading Program kickoff event and had a great time today at the
nearby Lake Hudson State Recreation Area. The DNR planned six activities
which groups of kids rotated through during the hour and a half session.
It was excellent all around! The kids roasted marshmallows over the
campfire to make s'mores, learned about camping, practiced fishing with the
Adrian College Bass Fishing Coach, met a Conservation Officer (local hero)
who showed and explained about his boat and all the equipment he carries on
his body, learned about geocaching, and practiced archery.
It was such a nice, well-organized program. We only had 82 kids participate
and 17 VolunTeens, but with parents and other adults included we had a
total of 130 people. And, we'll be connecting with the DNR for future
programs...it was a very successful win-win-win program! I hope the DNR
offers this SRP opportunity again. I highly recommend it to other libraries
located near state parks.
I always say: when Karren Reish sends an email, pay attention because it
can really pay off!
