It would also be a huge help if you

CROSSWORDS LA TOURNAMENT NEEDS YOUR HELP SAT., OCT. 24
Crossword puzzle lovers from everywhere will be converging at the
Crosswords LA tournament on
Saturday, October 24 – with proceeds benefiting
Reading to Kids!
The tournament will be held at the
Fowler Museum at UCLA (in the Harry and Yvonne Lenart Auditorium), and
Crosswords LA needs our volunteers to help!
They need volunteers to set up portions of the event, greet and sign in contestants, and collect puzzle papers.
This tournament raises money for Reading to Kids, so
if you can volunteer with them for either the full day or a half day, please e-mail us at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Full day volunteers (8:30am – 4:45pm) get a
free lunch! Let's show our volunteer spirit by supporting their efforts to help us!
THANK YOU, LEX!
Please join us in thanking the wonderful Lex Babiarz as she spends her last day tomorrow with Reading to Kids! That's Lex on the left in the above image with Lindsay Rapkin and Jessica at Politi.
Over the 2014-15 school year Reading to Kids had the great fortune to have Lex
work with us first as an AmeriCorps VIP Fellow Literacy Coordinator for 11 months, then as a Program Coordinator for the last six weeks. Much of our success this past year was due to her tireless efforts and dedication!
Tiara, Emma, and I will miss seeing Lex every day and will always appreciate her wisdom and wit!
Thanks in advance for helping us find more volunteers for these next reading clubs!
