State Representative Bob Pritchard finished up the last of his three ice cream parties on Saturday. The parties were a part of his annual summer reading club, which encourages kids to keep their minds active during the summer. The theme this year was 'Read to the Rythm'. The club was open to kindergarteners through 5th graders. Participants who read at least 8 books over the summer were invited to a free ice cream party and received certificates from the Illinois House of Representatives. Rep. Pritchard also shared important information about paying for college and the Bright Start program with parents.
