Rotary Reading Program

Posted by rotarian01 on November 11, 2008

The Manchester Rotary Reading Program opened my eyes to the need for adult volunteers in our local elementary schools. I fell in love with Mrs. Malloy’s 4th graders at Washington School.

I appreciate the teachers and para staff that work with children from a very poor area in our town. The chidren need people who are interested in them. They are like little sponges!

The experience changed my life. My class had the opportunity to read a story written by a local teenager. MACC Charities purchased a book for each of the children and after they read the book, they got to meet the author. It was an amazing day for all.

One little girl told me “Mrs. Stafford, now I know I can be an author too!” I think we will be reading her book in the next few years.
