---- — DERRY — Happy Birthday America!
Local children participating in the Hood Park summer program enjoyed some patriotic fun last week as they gathered for the annual Birthday Party for America.
Every year, the summer schedule gives children plenty of activity choices at Hood Park, part of the Derry Parks and Recreation’s full calendar of events with special themes like “Wizard of Oz,” “Adventures in Neverland,” and “Rockin’ Rodeo” that includes a western idol singing contest on July 23 and free pony rides on July 24.
Both Derry Public and Taylor libraries also host a full schedule of summer events for children and their families.
