'Read-A-Story' Group Honors Two Long-Time Members

Emily Day and Gerald Bloedow were thrown a retirement party June 5.

A group of more than 20 volunteers read to and perform for thousands of school children throughout the metro area each year.

And on June 5, two long-time members, and Gerald Bloedow, were honored for their commitment to the program, as they will now retire from performing. Attendees had lunch and fellow readers performed some numbers for departing members.

The has operated the Read-A-Story-Theater program, which is one of its activities for seniors, since 1995 and the program aims to teach kids that reading can be fun. The volunteers write, rehearse and conduct dramatic readings of popular children's books for kids in preschool through the fourth-grade.
