Barb Lintner: Read Across America, Saturday March 3 @ Lincoln Square
Paul Conforti: Bowl For Kids Sake, Friday March 2, 7-9pm Western Bowl, Champaign
Program:

Our speaker was Michael Hirschi (Champaign West), a Professor and Assistant Dean at the University of Illinois College of Engineering. However, Mike was here to talk about Boy Scouts of America (BSA), scouting in general, and the Prairielands Council in particular.
Mike is the father of 2 Eagle Scouts and participates in the operation of the Prairielands Council in a number of ways over the years,
• 1 in 4 US boys are Boy Scouts
• 4 in100 scouts will make Eagle designation
• 75% of leaders in US society have Scouting in their past
• 21 of the 24 men who have walked on the moon were Boy Scouts
Mike asked us to encourage our children or granchildren to consider Scouting. He also asked that those interested contact the Prairielands council to volunteer in a number of ways, both men and women. Businesses and service organizations can also consider sponsoring a Boy Scout troop.
Support can also be made by attending the Mountain Film Festival, March 6th at Parkland College (more info at the link below).
Look for Boy Scouts selling popcorn and batteries and support them by purchasing one of the other or both.
Mike distributed a brochure about the Prairielands Council and ways in which those interested can provide both financial or volunteer support.

Read Across America Volunteer Opportunity

Read Across America, the Reading Event at Lincoln Square will be held on Saturday, March 3 from 10am to 1pm.  CU Sunrise will have a rocker there and we need readers to share books with children.  We would like to have at least 2 readers each hour.  Let me know if you can read from 10 – 11, from 11- 12, or from 12-1 that day.  I’ll announce this again on Thursday and will continue to bug you by email until we get all the slots filled.
It is a great opportunity and if you aren’t familiar with what happens that day see the photos on the “Read Across America Sat. March 3, 2012” page on Facebook.   There are pictures of the 30 booths, Rotary Reading Rockers and other featured events from past years.
We will also need to choose a location for our rocker after that day, a school or preschool, library, social service agency, etc.  I’m also looking for someone to pick up the rocker at 1pm on March 3 and deliver it to the location of our choice.  If you read from 12-1 you can just load it in your van and take it away.
Email me and sign up now for this great event. -Barb
