On Your Mark, Get Set... READ this summer
Posted on June 10, 2016 at 10:06 AM by Bill Sowers
This summer across Kansas people will be enjoying the state's annual
Summer Reading Program
with contests, parties, read-alouds and other events promoting reading over the summer. The 2016 program, "
On Your Mark, Get Set... READ
," will encourage readers to not only pick up a book but to also grab a jump rope, sneakers, ball, flippers and of course a large bottle of sun screen and get out and run, walk, dance, jump, swim and hopscotch! Active minds will work together with active bodies to achieve a healthy summer for kids and adults.
So how can the state of Kansas provide its citizens, both young and old, with an opportunity to participate in activities to get the heart beating a bit faster?
Scattered across our state are twenty-six state parks with trails, beaches and sites for volleyball, baseball, frisbee golf, riding, fishing, hunting, birding, wildlife viewing, running and strolling. The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism provides information on these parks on their website as well as links to other information:
