We will soon be scheduling times to deliver literacy bags to Kindergarteners as part of our Rotary Readers project.  Rotary Readers is our annual project to provide reading books to students in the Reading Schools.  We provide two reading books in a Reading Rotary drawstring backpack.  Also, in the bag is literature about the importance of reading to children and information about Reading Rotary.
This past Wednesday this group gathered to assemble the book bags. Many hands made quick work and we had a blast.
Once we have the schedule from the schools, we will be looking for Rotarians to read to the Kindergarten classes.  Stay tuned.
Fun fact:  this literacy project was adapted from my daughter Mary Kate's Girl Scout Gold Award project, which was literacy bags for new mothers delivered to local hospitals.
