Reading Fall Street Faire Dunk The Readings Returns

September 11, Noon – Five

Select Board member Chris Haley takes his turn in the Dunk Tank at Dunk the Readings during the 2021 Fall Street Faire.

Reading, MA — The Reading Rotary Club is proud to present the 14th annual Fall Street Faire on Sunday, September 11. Come out to enjoy great food, live entertainment, amusements, games, attractions, and fun for the whole family. One of the most popular amusements is back this year – Dunk the Readings! Local leaders have stepped up to take their turns sitting in a dunk tank for a good cause. Local students may want to take note, as they’ll see some familiar faces in the dunk tank this year.

School Superintendent Dr. Thomas Milaschewski will be spending some time in the dunk tank. So will Reading Memorial High School Principal Kevin Tracey and Reading Memorial High School Assistant Principal Kadi Buckley. New Parker Middle School Principal Rochelle Rubino will take a turn in the tank, and so will Parker Vice Principal Jay Peledge. Filling out School representation in the dunk tank will be Tom Wise, a member of the School Committee. 

And it isn’t just school leadership you can dunk. Town Manager Fidel Maltez will be spending some time in the dunk tank. So will four members of the Select Board: Carlo Bacci, Mark Dockser, Chris Haley, and Jackie McCarthy.

The Rotary Club would like to thank all these good sports in local town and school leadership for spending some time getting wet to support a good cause during Dunk the Readings at the Fall Street Faire.

Dunk the Readings will be located on the corner of Haven and Gould Streets during the Faire. $2 buys one chance to dunk someone, and $5 buys three tries. For a $20 donation, you can enjoy an automatic dunk and see a local leader get dropped into some pretty cold water. Proceeds from Dunk the Readings will benefit the reading Rotary Club/Fall Street Faire and the owners of Ruff N Ready Dog Grooming, a local business that recently suffered a serious setback.
