Thanks to all of you who have supported our Get Caught Reading to a
Child Calendar Fund Raiser!
We have over 2000 calendars out across Alabama
reminding people to READ to children … A very enjoyable, FREE
activity that helps children do well in school and life.
Thank YOU for taking time to read to the children
you care about and helping to remind others to do the same!
Don’t forget to get the 2017 Jean Dean RIF
“See the Need to Read” calendar when it is available in the Fall.
2016 JeanDean Rif Ride to Read
Soggy Ride to Read was
still a BIG SUCCESS thanks to the GREAT
VOLUNTEERS of JEAN DEAN RIF!!
Many thanks to all of you!!
Looks like we will net about $2500 from
yesterday’s RIDE--That is lots of books
for lots of babies and VERY GOOD for a “bad
weather” day. Thanks for all of your
hard work and super attitudes!
Our participants were positive about the
event and are looking forward to next year.
I could not have done it without y’all!
Many thanks again to each of you!!
