Our club will be visiting two primary schools in our area.  Forest Park Primary, Grades K-3 and Woodland Primary, Grades K-3.  Members of our Rotary Club, will be joined by dignataries from the area, and of course our PI Puppy River, together we will visit both schools on Family Literacy Day, Jan 27th, 2020.  We will read a selection of books to each class through out the day in both schools and leave all the new books as a donation to the schools library.

Family Literacy Day® is a national awareness initiative created by ABC LifeLiteracy Canada in 1999 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and engaging in other literacy-related activities as a family.

We are proud to announce this inititave during Rotary's Basic Literacy and Education Month (September)!

This years book list will be all about diversity and inclusion!  Please see the list of books and their authors and illistrators below.
