As YMCAs across America prepare to celebrate National Healthy Kids Day, your Rockwall YMCA will kick off a new Summer Reading Program with a HEALTHY BODY, HEALTHY MIND BOOK DRIVE.
The Book Drive Kick-off Party will be held at NOON, SATURDAY, APRIL 14. Bring the family and enjoy healthy snacks as you drop off new or used children's books for the Rockwall YMCA's new Imagination Station - a library of books available for Y kids to explore while in ChildWatch or HYPE.
Volunteers and Y board members will also read to our Y kids who participate in Camp Dakota and Angel Camp this summer.
We are seeking donations of children's books appropriate for ages 5 -12. Donations will be accepted at the April 14th kick-off party through April 30th.
Our Book Drive & Summer Reading Program is our way of carrying out the Y's national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids, because exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind often end with the school year.
