Our reading program at North Bay Children's Center has been very much appreciated and an integral part of life at North Bay Children's Center for 10 years now.
Thank you to all the dedicated and caring NRWF members who have been reading on Tuesdays from 10:30 - 11:15 to three and four-year-olds at the North Bay Children’s Center. Because of our wonderful volunteers, we continue to be able to fulfill our commitment. A few of our loyal readers are no longer able to participate and we welcome new readers. This is your opportunity to read your family favorites to an enthusiastic audience.
To celebrate Flag Day and the 4th of July, our club presented 40 copies of the book "Sweet Land of Liberty" by Calista Gingrich to the children in the classes to who we read and one copy for the school library. The book, written in verse, stars an elephant names Ellis who visits a library and learns about American history and special places to visit, and it ends with a fireworks celebration of American Indpendence Day. In addition, we presented the school with two new American Flags for their classrooms.
