Read Across America Breakfast Rally in Oxford
“Read Across America Day” volunteers gather for a morning breakfast kick-off rally at the Quintard Mall Food Court. The volunteers prepare to participate in the annual reading awareness movement. They picked up their book and classroom assignment and enjoyed a short program. This year, the volunteers will read in more than 100 classrooms on Friday, March 7th. United Way and its Success By 6 Coalition will be placing volunteer readers in kindergarten and pre-school classrooms throughout Calhoun County. The different classrooms will get to keep the book read to them as a gift. Alabama Power is a sponsor and is donating the books to the classrooms. Many classrooms across our region are celebrating the event with week-long activities.
