News from South Worcester’s SWNICWritten by admin on July 8th, 2011
We start week two of our Summer Camp programs!
To date: South Worcester Neighborhood Improvement Corp. has 71 children attending.
Green Island Neighborhood Center (at Crompton Park) has 35 children enrolled.
The seven interns from the College of the Holy Cross are wonderful. Highly organized and energized, they have executed a good program for the kids. We have all six weeks scheduled out with a full and rich program.
Minor issues are as expected: lack of particular supplies and a need for swim suits. (The new pool at Crompton Park does not allow cut-offs or shorts.)
Reading is each day at 12:30 p.m., moved up a half hour so we could prepare better for swim time.
Thankful to all of you for making this happen on behalf of the children of South Worcester and Green Island.
Ron Charette, Executive Director SWNIC
