Reading and turnips

Mar 20, 2009

We spent yesterday evening reading to kids at Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities on the Southwest side of Grand Rapids. Amway is a longtime sponsor and contributed towards a new library, where we participated in “Tolly Time.”

Debb Kalmbach, our Corporate Citizenship Manager, serves on the board of directors and did the reading. I had the distinguished job of holding the prop – a turnip – and got the kids to participate. The kids made a birthday card for Amway (the big 50!). One boy guessed my exact age too (can you guess?). They all get a free book after participating, and of course a snack.

Here’s the link to Grandville’s blog and some pictures. Check out their website too!
