Georgia USA Districts Team with Dolly Parton on Literacy

On 6 March, country music legend Dolly Parton and Rotary International announced a collaborative relationship to begin a new chapter in promoting early childhood reading. The 3 District Governors in Georgia representing all 203 Rotary Clubs in that state were involved, DGs Ted Propes, Kenan Kern and Gary Moore.  

Under the agreement, Rotary clubs in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States are encouraged to support the Dollywood Foundation's Imagination Library, which provides a book each month to children from birth until age five. Click here for the full story from RI News
