Don't Miss Our Book Reading Day, November 15th
Rotary Club of Barrie supports literacy with annual Rotary Book Day
On November 15th, over 1,350 Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) Grade 2 students will receive copies of Andy & Elmer’s Apple Dumpling Adventure, thanks to a donation by the Rotary Club of Barrie. Schools will have the option of inviting Rotarians to visit their school for a read-along, or to watch a video recording of Rotary mascot Sprocket reading the book.
The Story Behind Our Book Project
Three years ago, we initiated the Book Project Contest, encouraging children to bring the book home and engage in a fun activity—making Apple Dumplings. The book conveniently features a delightful Apple Dumplings recipe at its conclusion. Participants are then invited to share a snapshot of their culinary creations on our Club’s Facebook page. To add an exciting twist, we conduct a draw among all the participating families, with one lucky winner receiving a Chrome Notebook. This not only promotes the Club but also attracts diverse audiences to explore our website, enhancing our online presence.
