Ice Cream Party
On Wednesday 3rd August , 2016, at the Dundee Community Center , the Dundee Public Library in conjunction with Friends of The Library Dundee Inc held their last event of their Summer Reading Program Schedule. An ice cream party sponsored by local businessman Kevin Kitto and his wife Jill Kitto. The recipients of the Kitto’s benevolence on the day were the seventy-four children who attended the event along with their caregivers, guardians and parents. Also in attendance, were Dundee Vice Mayor Bertram ‘Bert’ Goddard and his daughter Venessa Goddard. Presiding over the event was Library Superintendent Julie Feagle with assistance coming from FOL (Friends of The Library Dundee) volunteers Mary-Ann Podbielski and Alan Parkins .
Backpacks were handed out to a number of children as prizes. Done in recognition of not only their studious efforts over the Summer, but also as of making sure their return to school would not be one of hardship for their parents.
Throughout this Summer Schedule, the Dundee Public Library and Friends of The Library have sought to bring about a wide variety of events to entertain the children within our community , with the hope of providing a fun-filled spectacle for everyone in attendance during each of our scheduled shows .
A special word of thanks to the Kitto’s for making this last event possible and for their generosity ! Behind the scenes also, the efforts of the Dundee Library’s staff and those of the library’s volunteers should not go unnoticed, as throughout the year their continued dedication to the library has been exemplary .
With our Summer Reading Program for 2016 having come to an end , Mary-Ann will be resuming her Story-time Reading sessions at the Dundee Public Library. We would like to hear from the parents and the daycare center providers within our community who attend with the children , the sessions presided over by Mary-Ann. Simply call and speak with Library Superintendent Julie Feagle and offer up any ideas you might have concerning the Story-time Reading Sessions.
