First Book/ Proud Day Celebration 10/25, 27

Freedom Readers invites you to join us as we celebrate the strengths of our young scholars and the magnificence of reading with First Book.

On Monday October 25 from 3 pm – 4 pm at the Darden Terrace Community Center, members of the First Book advisory board of Horry County will honor our youngsters and tutors with games and delicious treats. Freedom Readers recently received $750.00 in brand new books from the organization whose mission it is to distribute books to children in low wealth communities. Thanks to the hard work of tutor and Freedom Readers grants specialist, Claire Campana, we were granted a variety of books that match the interests and reading abilities of our fantastic young scholars.

At the conclusion of the First Book celebration, Freedom Readers will host a 30 minute Proud Day program in which each individual scholar will be recognized by her tutor and a teacher or family member. We will focus exclusively on the strengths of each participant and the progress we’ve seen in reading ability, public speaking presence, maturity, and responsibility since the session began on September 9, 2010. A similar program was held in spring of 2010, and we are expecting an even greater level of community participation.

If you have an interest in Freedom Readers and would like to see the program in action, please leave a comment below. We’d love to make arrangements to have you visit us. Also, if you’d like to leave a word of encouragement for one of our tutors and/or scholars to be shared on Proud Day, we’d love to hear from you!
