A big welcome to a new baby
The Ellensburg Morning Rotary Club presented a backpack full of books and a gift certificate to Pearl Street Books to the first baby born on International Literacy Day locally on Sept. 8.
This year’s baby is Jared Russel Cromer, 8 pounds, 12 ounces. He is the son of Jessica Crandell and Kyle Cromer and was born at Kittitas Valley Healthcare.
Literacy is a basis for lifelong learning and plays a crucial foundational role in the creation of sustainable, prosperous and peaceful societies, according to UNESCO, which started Literacy Day in 1965.
In addition to raising awareness for literacy efforts, the Ellensburg Morning Rotary Club supports the Ellensburg School District bookmobile and hosts an annual family reading night at Bright Beginnings. The club also provides books at the Kittitas County jail and to new Habitat for Humanity homes, and has supported training for teachers in South Sudan.

|From Phil and Judy in Sudan.||Posted by Jerry Findley||
A response from Judy to let me know she will not be attending the Board meeting and up date on the trip.
Bob, as you know we are in S. Sudan so can't make it. But, we are attending a Rotary meeting, Rotary Club of Juba, tonight. They are the group that helped us last year so we are looking forward to seeing them. The turnover here is so great that we are not sure how many folks will still be around. All is well here, but very hot. Temps have been in the l00's with 80-90% humidity. Yuk! We are still in Juba so have internet and AC part of the time. Tomorrow we leave for Akon, where there is none of that fancy stuff, so it should be even more of an adventure. We are going to the orphanage today to give them the pillow case dresses, shirts, scarves, books and scholarships that our Club and the student IRA group from CWU + Rotaract students have put together. We will take lots of pictures. If your meeting is short on Thursday feel free to share our little update.
