Norton Elementary School and the Cumberland Public Library to offer "L'IL PALS PLUS" an enhanced 6 week summer camp at the Cumberland/Lincoln Boys & Girls Club. This collaborative effort was made possible with funding from the Hasbro Summer Learning Initiative of United Way RI and was the first significant project inspired by the Declaration of Education.
