The Cops 'n Kids Reading Room celebrated its second anniversary with a birthday party Saturday, with free childrens books, food, and a community gathering on Saturday at the Easton Area Community Center.

About 90 people attended, enjoying the festivities, which also included a science demonstration by volunteers from Air Products, making ice cream with liquid nitrogen.

The West Ward Neighborhood Partnership also held a garden fair at EACC. On hand were master gardeners from the Penn State University extension, who were available to answer
gardening questions.

Residents were treated to free plants and seedlings, including herbs and vegetables, as well as the opportunity to purchase larger specimens for a reduced price, free recycling bins, and other community-related activities.
