ATKINSON —The summer reading saga lives on. Prizes are being doled out to the ‘Dig Into Reading’ participants and twenty teens have already won gift cards for ice cream, iTunes, and UNO’s appetizers for being ‘Beneath the Surface’ participants. There is still time to play and win. The last day for teens to submit tickets to the raffle jar is August 2. They need 1000 tickets to get Kathy Watson, the Youth Services Director, to have a hideous hairstyle and color from August 8-31. Can the teens pull it off again this year?
