Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
In two days we'll hold our November 11th "Seasons & the Natural World" reading clubs, and we still need a few more volunteer readers this Saturday!
If we are full when you check our website, please
keep checking back today and tomorrow for new spots to replace folk who need to cancel.
If you are signed up but know you can't join us,
cancel your RSVP here immediately so someone else can read in your place!
November is also our college spirit month,
when we count the college logos volunteers wear that morning to see which college shows the most spirit. Will your school win the competition?
