Family Summer Reading Program Ends with a SPLASH!


The 2016 Family Summer Reading Program ended with a splash on August 11. Following an ice cream social for all readers -- and the annual prize drawing -- the many participants who completed their reading logs were treated to a ride on Polson's amphibious HAPPY HIPPO, courtesy of owner Bob Ricketts. It was a wet and exhilarating adventure, judging by the smiles and squeals of delight coming from the riders!
