We were recently advised by the Rockport Selectmen’s office that the FOX25 (WFXT Boston) morning news team will be coming to Rockport’s T- Wharf this coming Friday, August 31, broadcasting live from 6 am to 9 am for a ‘Zip Trip’. The show’s format includes a mix of live guests, taped pieces, and special segments aimed at capturing our town’s charm and appeal. Rockport residents are invited to show up early and watch the live broadcast.
As part of their visit to Rockport, the FOX25 Morning News crew will be collecting brand new books for children ages six months to five years old. All of the books you drop-off will go to Reach Out and Read, a literacy program with locations all over New England. The Reach Out and Read program promotes early reading. All of the new books collected are distributed to area pediatricians who get them in the hands of low-income patients during routine visits.
For more details about the book drive, including suggested books, please click on the link below. For general information about FOX25’s Zip Trip, visit www.myfoxboston.com and type in the words ‘Zip Trip’ in the search bar.
Please join your fellow Rockport Chamber members and Rockport residents at T-Wharf on Friday, to celebrate Rockport and promote children’s reading.
Holliston recently gave 153 books. Let’s make Rockport’s donations a record breaker!! Please tell your friends and family about the visit and have them bring books to the drive for this very important fundraiser.
