Hi R2K Friends and Fans!
Wow! The July 9th Reading Clubs are just
around the corner -- time to sign up for these "Independence
and Growing Up"-themed Reading Clubs. You
can RSVP for the Reading Clubs by
It's a great time to celebrate Independence and Growing Up -- not only
because everyone's favorite fireworks show is around the corner, but also
because this July marks the start of a new school year at everyone's favorite
schools: Esperanza, Gratts, Magnolia, and Noble. A new class of kindergarteners
will start the year! Fifth graders are graduating (some of them today!) to
middle school. Celebrate the always-exciting academic year kick-off at the July
Remember: our schools are all on three- or four-track calendars,
meaning they've got kids in school year-round. The
schools don't stop, so we don't stop volunteering. Make R2K a part of
your July and August plans!
Have a GREAT Hair Day this Sunday!
This Sunday is the long-anticipated Cut-a-Thon
celebration and Reading to Kids benefit at the
Vaksberg Salon. The salon (located
at 7803 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles, Ca. 90036 --
across from CBS) will be hosting an hair-cutting extravaganza from 9:00
a.m.-4:00 p.m. Anyone who brings three new hardcover books to
the salon will get a great haircut for FREE!
In addition, at 7:00 Irene Vaksberg will
welcome R2K fans, her clients, and local artists (whose work hangs in the
Vaksberg Gallery) to the salon for an
evening reception celebrating
the month-long book drive. The price of admission to the event?
One new children's book!
The "Cuts 4 Books" promotion will go on
until June 30th, by which time Irene hopes to have collected
books for Reading to Kids! How's that for a
community-minded local businesswoman?
Join me and your fellow R2K volunteers for a
haircut on Sunday...and stick around for the reception afterward. We'd love to
see you there!
That's all folks! Hope to see you on Sunday!
