Members of Read2Me met last Thursday at the Blue Ridge Roadhouse in hopes of building momentum for the program. Read2Me is a community literacy campaign geared to encouraging parents to read with their children early and often.
After a year of working in Macon County, the community-oriented group is looking to expand and build new membership to continue with the goal of promoting early literacy and proving that “Reading Matters in Macon County.”
Joined by representatives from the Macon County Health Department, the Fontana Regional Library, The Franklin Press, Angel Medical Center's new CEO, county commissioners and the superintendent of Macon County Schools, members of Read2Me recapped events that have occurred over the past year.
