Partners in Reading wrapped up the school year with luncheons at Jefferson Primary and Vandalia Elementary schools.
In the first photo, volunteers Beulah Brown, Eileen Pearson and Mary Fulton eat lunch with their students. In the second photo are Ben Davis and Hannah Brinkler, who had lunch with their volunteer readers, Mike and Pam Baker. Attending were the adult volunteer readers and their students. Partners in Reading is a volunteer reading program in Vandalia's elementary schools through which adult volunteers read to students during their lunch hours. The program has been in existence for 15 years and runs from October to the end of the school year. Sherry Schneider is the coordinator at Jefferson Primary, and Jill Jewel is the contact person at VES. Anyone interested in volunteering during the next school year may contact Pam Baker at 283-0671.
