SAVE THE DATE: ANNUAL TASKFORCE POTLUCK ON
SUNDAY, APRIL 28
Want to become more involved? Each year, Reading to Kids hosts an all-Taskforce Potluck as an opportunity for our
Taskforce committees to meet and talk about their plans for the year and to welcome new Taskforce members.
Whether you're currently serving on the Taskforce or just curious, we welcome you to drop by to meet fellow volunteers, committee chairs, and office staff.
This year our Annual Taskforce Potluck will be on Sunday, April 28th. The location is yet to be finalized, but will be announced shortly!
We'll have a lunch/social hour from 1:00 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. and then meet from 1:45 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. We will start with a brief overview of each committee and then break out into smaller groups for committee meetings.
Please RSVP to our Facebook event listing by
