Last Saturday at Miller Park, the Kiwanis Club of Malden in conjunction with the Key Club and many sponsors hosted Bubbles and Books. This is a program allowing children from elementary and middle schools to stop by and take home as many previously read books, collected from around the city, as they can carry. This timely program is perfect for the summer vacation coming up. Along with books and other giveaways, face painting and slush were also given to all in attendance for free. A puppet show – featuring Lindsay and her Puppet Pals – was also part of the event.
Key Club members from Malden High School and Mystic Valley Regional Charter School volunteered to help with the event. Many thanks to the sponsors that stepped up to support the event, especially the faculty and students of the Beebe School, who collected many of the books for the program.
