What did you do over summer vacation in Middletown? As students head back to school soon, this is a topic that may likely be a first writing assignment for many. Councilwoman Deborah Kleckowski (R) spent her summer vacation running the youth summer day camp for the Salvation Army of Middletown located on Main Street. The program provided day long child care and educational activities designed by Kleckowski. In this photo from the Salvation Army's public facebook page, Kleckowski and local campers  attended a day long educational excursion at the State DEEP's Fish Hatchery in Burlington Connecticut. Later, students showed off what they learned in a song and dance presentation.
Other activities included a  music lesson from Middlesex Music Academy ) of Middletown (Main Street), swimming at Crystal Lake, trips to Russel Library, visits with Middletown Police Officers Rowland and Wallace, and picnics at Wadsworth Falls. The Middlesex Chamber of Commerce over saw the youth summer employment program which provided teen helpers for the Salvation Army's day camp.

For every field trip or guest speaker the children had, they
 were responsible for writing thank you notes to those who donated their time,

 and completing other educational activities.
