Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our March 11th reading clubs are filling up nicely, though we still have 32 spots, so please submit your RSVP today. You can also help recruit friends by joining and sharing our March 11th Facebook event.

We can use our more experienced volunteers to help train new volunteers, as a GLC, or as a Site Coordinator. Plus, you want to enjoy the musical performances at each school!
