feeling proud and patting ourselves on the back a little
Today I was finally able to type up an article about the wrap-up of our program for the local papers and was awed by our stats:
We wound up with a total of 419 participants (babies-adults)
54 programs over our 6 weeks of Summer Reading
A grand total of 1,277 people attending these 54 programs! That's NUTS! NUTS! I'm totally usually that as our biggest selling point when I apply for grants this coming fall/winter for 2014!
We're patting ourselves on the backs, and yet, already thinking ahead to a busy fall. Our next big thing is a back to school activity for kids 4th-12th grades. Think Double Dare--trivia combined with messy, disgusting challenges! I think Prairie Dawn and I get as pumped, if not more, than the kids do about this stuff! We're still planning our fall calendar, but almost every activity is planned out from Aug. 1st - December 31st, and there is definitely something satisfying in that--I hodge podged things together from when I started until Prairie Dawn started, but now with her help I can plan things out months in advance...and that is a very good feeling. :)
