Summer Reading Grand Slam at the Mountaineers!

The Barre Altrusa International Club's Summer Reading Grand Slam Vermont Mountaineers Night was rained out on July 9th. The good news is that the rain date is Monday, July 23 and kids still have time to participate in this fun event. Kids get in free with their completed list of nine books read (one book for each inning), receive a free book from the Altrusa Club, and get their names entered into a drawing for six $50 gift certificates from local book stores. The kids should arrive at the Montpelier Recreation Field at 6:00 pm with their list in hand. They will go out onto the field to be recognized when the Mountaineers players' names are called. To get your reading list form click here. You even get to meet some of the players!
