 Lay your blanket down under a shaded tree or under the hot summer sun and join the Melrose Recreation Department  as Kathy Harlow from the Family Resource Network reads new and classic story time books to all in attendance. Kathy will share ideas of things to do with kids at home to reinforce the story and to keep literacy a part of each day. After we are done reading, all participants will have a chance to work off that energy by running underneath and all around our giant parachute. Our Story Time and Parachutes is led by our Park Instructors, but parents are encouraged to jump in to help. After the class, stay and enjoy our Pizza Party Friday event with our supervised bounce house!
