Hundreds Take Part in OIC’s Summer Reading Kickoff

Harrisburg (June 2)   More than 300 parents and children joined in the fun at the sixth Annual Summer Reading kickoff hosted by Tri-County OIC Adult Learning Center. “We hope that every child that came out today got excited to take our reading challenge this summer,” OIC Executive Director Jeffrey Woodyard said. “Our goal today is to make sure that everyone keeps exercising their mind when school is out this summer. Signing up for our Summer Lunch and Reading Program is a great way to do just that.”

OIC’s Summer Lunch & Reading program provides free, nutritious lunches to children ages one through 18 who live in the Harrisburg School District.

“We thank all of our partners who joined us here today,” Woodyard said. “And we extend special thanks to Curious George, OIC’s own Booky Bee, the Queen of England, Jim Rule, juggler Bobby Pleis, and Super Reader. We couldn’t have done it without them.”

Tri-County OIC Holds Free Earth Day Workshop

Harrisburg (April 21)   Students, families and residents turned out today for the Tri-County OIC Adult Learning Center’s free Earth Day Container Gardening Workshop at the Broad Street Market, according to OIC Master Gardner Robert Harden. “We’re excited so many people from our community came out for this event,” Harden said. “We hope this workshop will spark a greater interest in making our homes greener.”

Local gardener and author Kenny Point conducted the workshop with the help of the Dauphin County Master Gardeners. “We’re so lucky that Kenny Point and the Master Gardeners were able to participate,” Harden said. “Their knowledge and expertise was really put to work to show everyone how to keep their gardens growing.”
