Gift of Reading
Tuesday, February 9, 2016
Highlights: Come learn about the Gift of Reading "story" and how this community initiative is celebrating 20 years of making a difference in Niagara. The program has grown to provide over 9500 books annually to needy schools and agencies while our Club's members yearly log hundreds of volunteer hours to make it a success. An interactive presentation with treats for all in attendance makes this a meeting not to miss! Come celebrate our program's past and future!
