Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We hope you all had a great Halloween! Now we've all had our fill of costumes and candy, we are just days away from our November 11th "Wonders of Science & Technology" reading clubs! Please help us recruit the 114 more readers we need that morning!

Start by signing up today! Join our November 11th Facebook Event and share with your friends!

You can also print out this flyer to post around town or use this template to email your friends and co-workers.

November 11th is also College Spirit Day, so be sure to rep your college proudly! We'll be tallying the number of volunteers sporting their college logo that morning and announcing the winner the following week!

If you're signed up for the Nov. 11th reading clubs but know you can't make it after all, please be sure to cancel your RSVP as soon as you can.
