Andersson Celebrates Fourth Annual Summer Reading Program


State Representative Steve Andersson recently celebrated the close of his fourth annual summer reading program. Rep. Andersson has hosted a summer reading program every year to help encourage students to read and learn throughout the summer months. This year’s program, DREAM BIG, READ! drew another impressive turnout.

PK - 5th graders were invited to read 10 books over the summer. Readers sent in their reading lists and were then were invited, along with their families, to a special celebration.

This summer’s program drew over 50 participants from Rep. Andersson’s 65th District. The Representative welcomed his summer readers and their families to a celebratory pizza party to recognize their accomplishments.

“It's always a fun event,” said Rep. Andersson. “Some of these kids have been with me for 4 years, and it has been so fun to watch them grow!”

The party also featured a magic show from Don "Wand" Bothwell. Rep. Andersson read the book, "Happy Dreamer" and presented each reader with a certificate of congratulations, as well as a goody gift bag.

It was a great night and everyone had a wonderful time!
