A Doggone Good Time

The Anniversary celebration for R.E.A.D. brought together 4 groups 0f dogs and their handlers, and nearly forty readers plus their parents.  The two hour event on Saturday, September 14th was a success.  The Howard Lake Community Room was abuzz with the sound of young voices taking turns reading to Penny, Sara, Jack & Keira.


There was cake, “puppy chow” and Kool Aid for treats for the humans and all who read received a book to take  home.   A BIG thank you to all who made this event so successful.   A schedule for smaller, more intimate monthly reading sessions will be posted.  Stop at the Howard Lake Library for more information or check back here as the information will be posted as soon as the dates are decided.
