Tyler Transit Offering Free Summer Bus Rides For Kids To Library & Pool
Well it's official, the kids are out of school...
And that means they will be laying around your house all summer long running up your utility bills, playing on their cell phones and game consoles getting on your last nerve bothering you at work with crazy questions.
I know this because I have 3 sons who have done this to me and my wife for many years but our last one is graduating high school this weekend so we'll be done with them bugging us but for the rest of you parents, we have a reminder that you don't have to put up with their tomfoolery this summer, send them back OUTSIDE.
Get On The Bus And Go To The Pool Or The Library This Summer!
Tyler Transit, Tyler Parks and Recreation and the Tyler Public Library have partnered to promote the Fun Forest Pool and the Library's Summer Reading Program.

Don't Let Your Kids Lose Brain Power Over The Summer, Make Sure They Get Some Knowledge At The Library!
