County Kids Read at the Wellington Family Day Event

Maddy Piper and Mercedes Crowe from  the ROC, along with Wendy Matthews (County Kids Read) and Liz Bosma Donovan (Wellington Rotary) were  in attendance at the Wellington Family Day events at Lehigh Centre last week. County Kids Read provided books to help the Wellington Rotary launch  a new free reading program website. The online site helps children with reading skills such as sight word recognition.

CKR Volunteers Host Open House for New County Council

On Friday, February 1st several Councillors and the Mayor of Prince Edward County visited the County Kids Read book room. Coffee, treats and conversations about literacy filled the room.  The low literacy rates in the County and the response to this issue by the County Kids Read project was discussed by volunteers and council.

Thank you to the council for taking the time to visit and learn about County Kids Read.
