ARCANUM – The Arcanum Public Library wrapped up its summer reading program with a party for patrons on Aug. 5. At the party, there were balloon animals, building toys, and outdoor games. Kids could get their face painted, and enjoy ice cream and popsicles. Prizes for the top readers were displayed and handed out, along with other prizes patrons had earned during the eight-week program. A great time was had by all.
The library would like to thank all who participated and helped make this a fun-filled, learning event for all. There were a record number of participants, and many incentives given throughout the summer. The library also wants to thank all of the local businesses and patrons who donated gifts, decorations, supplies, or money to help them put on a great program: Young’s Jersey Dairy, Troy Recreation Department, Vandalia Recreation Center, Papa John’s Pizza in Greenville, Marco’s Pizza in Greenville, Jumpy’s Fun Zone, Beechwood Golf Course, Dayton Dragons, The Scott Family McDonald’s, Lowes in Greenville, Lowes in Troy, Sherwin Williams Paints in Greenville, Kroger, Troutwine Insurance, Picnic’s Pizza, Cynthia Vogel, Kennedy Vineyard, Subway in Arcanum, Subway in Greenville, Hot Head Burritos in Greenville, Rural King, Brumbaugh’s Fruit ‘N Fun Farm, and anyone else who may have helped with their time, talent, and more!
