     Rotarians Milon McDaniel (back left) and Joyce McDaniel (back right) delivered books to Mrs. Wendy Stansell's 2nd grade class in Marsing to start off Rotary's 2nd Grade Book Project this year.

      By the end of this year, over 1,400 grade appropriate chapter books will be delivered to 2nd grade classes in 18 schools in Canyon and Owyhee counties as a part of Rotary's literacy project. This is sometimes the first book to begin a child's home library.

      The McDaniels order books for Rotary's project and each teacher selects a specific book for each student in their classroom according to their interests and reading level. The kids are always very excited and happy to receive this special gift from Rotary.

      Milon and Joyce will be having teachers in Caldwell picking books for their kids this week and will start setting deliveries up for the week of Sept. 23rd.
