Reader scrapbook

Payton Webley met some of the newest members of his grandparents’ family in Quincy during his spring break recently. The family dog, Maggie, had eight puppies five weeks ago. Payton and his siblings played with and cuddled the pups — none of them have been named yet — until they were worn out. Payton’s parents are Shane and Jennifer Webley. Shane’s parents are Bruce and Mary Anne Webley of Quincy.

Share your summer activities for kids

What’s available this summer for NCW kids to do? If your nonprofit organization, school or church offers recreation, classes or a camp for school-age kids, tell us about it. We’ll include it in a preview of summer activities in the May 16 Neighbors section. We need a description of the activity, ages allowed, date, time, location, cost, name of the sponsoring organization and a phone number we can publish.
