Skookum Rotary  donated 120 K-12 grade level reading books to Sound Learning earlier this week. The books were shipped to the club in conjunction with our school dictionary project completed earlier in the year. These books will be used by Sound Learning in fulfilling its literacy mission and distribute books through its current programs including populating its little libraries in town. 
 
Pictured are Skookum Rotarians Shannon Klasell (Sound Learning Executive Director) accepting the books from Phil Grigg (Dictionary Project lead) in front of Sound Learning's office on Railroad Avenue.

Remember, no regular club meeting this week.  
 The 'Club that gets things done' gathered on Saturday morning to help tidy up downtown Shelton to get ready for Christmas Town celebrations hosted by Kristmas Town Kiwanis.  Kristmas Town Kiwanis has  been a long time supporter of OysterFest and we wanted to support them in their event and share our community pride.
 
A dozen Rotarians and partners gathered at Evergreen Square for fellowship and to launch the cleanup under the direction of Bill Busacca; Mario Garcia, Bob Miller, Kyle Fritz, Michelle Campbell, Gary Schuyten, Sarah Systma, Jill Himlie, Shannon Klassell, Jerry Obendorf, Evan Tozier, and Teri King.  A shout out to members that brought extra gloves, vests and tools to share.  A team of two tackled the old Mell Chevrolet lot where the tree maze will be this year while others worked on the sidewalks, lawns and storefronts from First and Railroad all the way up both sides of the avenue to Seventh and Railroad.  Overall the cleanup took  just 1.5 hours.  . A huge thank you to the City of Shelton street sweeper for helping with the final pick up of leaves!
