Baby's First Book - District Matching grant project

 
For our 2015-2016 District matching grant, we're promoting literacy in our community by providing every baby born at our local hospital with a bilingual English-Spanish book of nursery rhymes, along with a letter to parents explaining the importance of reading to children beginning at a very early age.  Rotarians of Winnemucca Kay Eason, Tom Klein, and our club's Foundation Chair JoAnn Casalez worked hard to write the grant.  Kay ordered the materials and many of our members helped to apply Rotary Club of Winnemucca book plates inside of and insert letters to parents in the books.
 
We would like to thank our Rotary District 5190, especially District Foundation Chair Vic Slaughter, for your assistance with the matching grant that made this community service project possible.  Also, thank you to Nicole Maher at Humboldt General Hospital, and Rotary member Tina Perkinson for helping to coordinate the distribution of the books!
