The Frazier Mountain Community Celebration, Showcasing the Best of Frazier Mountain Neighbors
What about a celebration of Literature, Health, Friendship, Commerce, Creativity and Community-all rolled into a lighthearted day’s stroll through Frazier Park?
To the Community:
Our Rotary Club’s First Festival of Books turned out to be a huge success!
Approximately 200 children were able to meet and get autographs from Clifford the Red Dog, McGruff, Bo Bo the Clown, Little Red Riding Hood, Alice in Wonderland and eight other storybook characters who read stories to children continuously throughout the day.
Children also did arts and crafts, played musical instruments, had a balloon show, enjoyed facepainting, and best of all, each child received six to eight free books of their own to take home!
We sincerely thank each and every one of you who helped to make this event happen, either by donating books, time or funding, and thank all those parents who brought their children to enjoy this Celebration of Literacy. We look forward to doing it again next year!
