A Spring Festival to benefit the Summer Focus program in Luthersville will be held May 18.

The festival and the summer enrichment program are sponsored by the American Union Relief Society. The AURS Spring Festival will be held at the Luthersville City Hall Complex on May 18 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

The festival will be a kickoff for Summer Focus Camp for 2013. Beverly Ball said there will be “a community day of fun” with “food booths, music – lots of different activities.”

Summer Focus Camp will be held at the city complex from June 11-July 31 from Tuesday-Thursday each week. Sessions will be from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

Summer Focus is open to ages 6-15. There is a registration fee of $20 per child.

Participants will work on writing and language arts fundamentals and math fundamentals. Ball said there also will be “arts and crafts, baseball, tennis” and basketball.

Lunch is served to participants.

“Volunteers need to assist students in enrichment skills, sports fundamentals and citizenship skills,” Ball said. 

For information, contact Ball or Freeman.

Anyone interested in sponsoring Summer Focus by having a booth or in making a contribution – or in volunteering for the program – should contact Rev. Roderick Freeman at 404-503-7409 or Ball at 770-486-8930.
