Service Above Self: Club Members Read to Young Students

 
As part of our Community Service for the 2012-2013 year, several Elgin Breakfast Rotary Club members have been reading to students at Illinois Park Elementary School on Thursday mornings. By joining together with the United Way of Elgin, club members have been part of the Reading Buddies program. Members take turns reading for 30 minutes to small groups of pre-school or kindergarten children. The program helps instill a love of reading and learning in these young students. A total of six club members have participated in the program this year. Club members enjoy their time with the students and are commited to making a contribution to our local community through this effort.
