Emily, Paulina and Ian presented the Rim Literature Club program.
They went through the basics of the group, and their current activities. They have been reading both literature and also introducing kids to poetry at all of the elementary schools. They also had fun with kid’s assemblies, and put on a Dr. Seuss Birthday play! They will be reading at the hospital on March 18 and 25th.
They could use some help buying books – and will submit a request for donation.
Quite a handsome group!
Rudy Westervelt shared his trip to Haiti with the group.
What a desperate place – what could be a beautiful island nation is a nation of desperately poor and apparently helpless people. Rudy shared a few photos, and stories of his visit. Trash piled shoulder height, armed guards at the hospital and absolutely no sanitation.
