The S.M.A.R.T. Kids Summer Extension Program ran for a total of eight weeks. The program, held every day from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m., started July 1st through August 20th. Daily activities included crafts, gaming, outside physical activities, movies, and cooking. A free lunch was provided daily by the Lakewood Board of Education. Raisa Gofman, a monitor at Lakewood, taught the children a Ukrainian dance that they performed at the closing celebration. School supplies were donated by the St. Andrew’s Methodist Church in Toms River and were handed out at the beach party, which ended the program.
