News Community Rotary Club of Franklin honors Read2Me

In honor of March being literacy month for the Rotary Club of Franklin, rotarians honored the original members of Macon County's volunteer organization Read2Me for their efforts to promote early literacy in the community.

Each Read2Me member was presented with the Rotary Club's Family and Community Service Award.

Read2Me is a volunteer organization geared toward promoting early literacy in children birth to five-years-old through public awareness, free book distributions and parent training sessions on how to raise a reader.

Pictured L-R are Read2Me members, Brittney Parker of Macon County News, Maria Tallent of Girl Scouts, Gary Dills, Rotary Club of Franklin President, Diane Cotton of Western Mountain Reading Council and Macon County Schools, and Carol Waldroop of Macon County Schools.
