The Rotary Club of Saranac Lake met a new goal this year and put a book in the hand of each child in Petrova and Bloomingdale elementary schools. The work of the Rotary Literacy Committee, Esther Arlan, Julie Connors, Dianne Tkach and Nicole Wright, fundraisers and member donations made the project happen.
"The kids just loved getting a book to take home over the summer," Tkach told the Enterprise.
The Rotary Club hopes to make this literacy initiative an annual event.
