Boys and girls draw “Water Hugs” for new book

Thursday 1 August Boys and girls draw “Water Hugs” for new book

Utility Systems published a children’s story about one little girl’s love of the water called Water Hugs. Written by Utility Marketing Coordinator Jenny Tomes, she read the story during her summer camp education presentations. Jenny asked the kids to draw a picture to go with each page of the story. Drawings included in the book were chosen from the 21st Century Community Learning Centers and Port St. Lucie Parks & Recreation summer camp programs. The artists, all Port St. Lucie residents, are 7 and 8 years old. Each received their very own copy of the book, and more are being distributed at the Utility Systems Customer Service Office located in City Hall.

Water Hugs is dedicated to all of the amazing boys and girls who take such good care of our water and we hope they enjoy this book!

Education and outreach is an opportunity for Port St. Lucie Utility Systems to bring awareness to the many ways we can all help keep our environment thriving. Kids can impact and influence those around them by leading the way.
