The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties has announced that its Success By 6 initiative will host a Reading Rally at the Cannon County Senior Center, located at 609 Lehman Street in Woodbury, on Saturday, March 5th from 10:00 AM - 12:00 p.m.
The event will target youth ages 0-third grade and will feature complimentary books, child identification kits, and door prizes.
At the inaugural Reading Rally, children will be entertained with literacy-related activities, storytelling with special guests, face painting, and refreshments. Families will also have the opportunity to register for Books from Birth and library cards.
The date for the event was chosen as it is the Saturday after the birthday of the late children's author, Dr. Seuss.
United Way's Success By 6 initiative provides educational resources to parents and early education programs to the community to ensure all children are ready for kindergarten.
The Cannon County Reading Rally is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Jennifer Smith at (615) 893-7303.
