As we join our family and friends over the Thanksgiving holidays – please remember those among your family, friends and teachers that taught you to read, gave you inspiration through learning and supported you as you sought your goals in life and say THANK YOU! Please remember those who may still experience barriers due to reading and language skills. Take some time to read to a child, make some personal time to just enjoy a book, read a new recipe, learn a new skill through reading, or take a family trip to a local library or museum. Make family literacy more than just a by-line.
A special thank you to all of our volunteers that give so much of themselves to help someone improve their lives and thank you to all of our learners whose courage is amazing.
LVA is going totally GREEN. The LVA Newsletter, The Open Book, will now only be published on our website. Just click on the NEWS heading above to read some interesting literacy news, check out the upcoming calendar and keep in touch. (Special thanks to Board member, Kathy Moore, for her work in producing the Newsletter.) If anyone has any interesting articles, pictures of you and your learner, artwork or writings/poetry by tutor or learner we would love to publish it in the newsletter – just forward them along to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your learner has made some significant accomplishments, like getting a promotion or getting a driver’s license and they would like to share that news – let us know. If you are aware of any community events related to literacy we would be interested in that. As always we want to thank all of our tutors and learners for the hard work they do.
