School Book Project


    "The Rotary Club wants to help improve the literacy of all Warren County third-graders by buying books for all thrid-graders," said Rotary President-ElectBill Miller as he discussed the "Flip to Read" fundraiser during the Board of Education's Sept. 11th meeting.
    The club plans to purchase sets of books for third graders at Mariam Boyd, South Warren and Vaughan elementary schools, and Northside K-8 School. Another fundraiser is planned for 2019 to benefit a different school.  The Rotary Club will focus on one school each year until the four schools have received books.
    The Warrenton Rotary Club held a "Flip to Read" pancake dinner on Thursday, October 25th, at Mariam Boyd Elementary School in Warrenton as the first in a series of fundraisers to support a club initiative to provide books for local third-grade students.
    The next Pancake Supper Fundraiser is scheduled for Thursday, April 25, 2019 from 4:30pm-7:30pm at the South Warren Elementary School. The school is located at 216 Shocco Springs Road, in Warrenton.
