Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network

Students from the Reading and Racquets afterschool program in Albany, GA met with Mayor Dorothy Hubbard on Tuesday, November 28 to present her with a gift of thanks for proclaiming Lights on Afterschool Day in October. The gift is a three-photo frame consisting of a 5x7 image of the 2017 Lights On poster in the center, a thank you note from the Georgia Statewide Afterschool Network on the left, and a quote from fifth-grade student, Dylan Keely on the right. When asked about his afterschool experience, Dylan said, β€œI love Reading and Racquets because we get to play tennis, the food is delicious, and the staff and kids are very friendly. I have made some new friends, read books I have never read before, learned how to build a mini robot, how to make a solar oven, and learned new strategies to do my homework. Reading and Racquets is just fun!” Dylan is pictured to the right of Mayor Hubbard.
