2009 Participants

Read for the Record is an annual event to support community literacy. PDK International and FEA partnered with Jumpstart and Pearson Foundation to kick off Read for the Record on October 7, where teens and adults across the U.S. will read The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle to young students as part of this annual event. 

When PDK Chapter 1524 Board members met in late September 2009, support for this initiative was enthusiastic, but with only a few days to implement it on the local level it seemed unlikely that outreach efforts to volunteer participants would have much success. In what turned out to be a literally overnight achievement by Chapter 1524's 2010-11 President-elect, Roberta Levitt, and Communications Director, Nicole Valente, 27 participants responded!

Each recipient will receive a Certificate of Participation and a poster of recognition with each participant’s name on it will be hung in the Instructional Media Center of the B. Davis Schwartz Library.
