We will be hosting a Rotary Reads event to help support the Maine-wide focus on reading to our youth.  Gene Pellerano is leading this project, so please check in with him if you can not sign up for a reading slot at our upcoming meetings.

Reading to young children is rewarding and reminds one of the joy in children’s smiles.  We are only looking for a 15 to 30 minute reading session at one of three sites on Tuesday February 19.  If you can join in this project please get back to me at ejpmaine@gmail.com by e-mail Sunday morning, we would love to have you read.
