The Reading Lions Club wishes to thank the  community for their tremendous support for our June 8, 2024 Reading Friends and Family Day

Thank You to:

Our Inspiration!
This year Reading Friends and Family Day was held in honor of Domenic Rotondi. Dom was a Reading Lion for over 65 years. He and Nancy Jenney established the first Reading Friends and Family Day (RFFD) 20 years ago on May 22, 2004. Dom's vision and dedication in creating a true community event combining activities, food, and the participation of local groups is a legacy the Reading Lions Club is proud to continue to sponsor and organize. Dom recently passed away and will be missed by the Reading Lions Club and the entire community.

Our Town of Reading Partners!
The Reading Lions Club could not run this event without the ongoing support of the Reading Public Works Department, Facitilites Department and the Recreation Division.  Special thanks to the Reading Police Department and Reading Fire Depaertment for assistance during the fair.

Our Booth Participants!
Close to 60 groups joined in to add all the personal touches that made RFFD a welcoming and fun event.  Attendees stopped at booths to pick up lots of great giveaways, enjoy free snacks (cotton candy and ice cups and more!), try out a variety of activities and games (karate, soccer, softball, music), and visit the Touch a Truck area (Reading Police, Reading Fire, Reading DPW and Sheriffs Department!) . Most of all, attendees had a chance to meet their neighbors from a host of community groups, Town departments and local businesses!  

Thank you all. For more information contact!

Please Note: Reading's Annual Fireworks, sponsored by the Friends of Reading Recreation, will take place on Saturday, June 15!
