Madison Rotary Celebrates Read Across America with Borough Second Garders


MADISON, NJ -  As part of the 20th Read Across America celebration, the Rotary Club of Madison was busy promoting literacy with Madison’s second graders.  

The Rotary’s annual Literacy Project included a group of Rotarian volunteers who visited all Madison Elementary schools’ Second Grades and read the age-appropriate story, “Andy & Elmer’s Apple Dumpling Adventure.”  The children’s book, written by a group of Ohio Rotarians, focuses on ethical behavior and literacy in an appealing way to young children.  

Program Chairperson, Mary Beth Cooney reported a total audience of 247 students in Madison’s 12 Second Grades enjoyed listening to the children’s story, an example of Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self.”

The Rotarians visited Central Avenue School, Torey J. Sabatini School, Kings Road School and St. Vincent Martyr School.  Participating in this year’s program were Rotarians:  Michel Belt, Tom Bintinger, Bob Chapman, Bob Conley, Mary Beth Cooney , George Hayman, Jeffrey Kraft, Radika Lutchman, Marianne McConnell, Tucker McKeever , Neal Oldendorp, Rose Pancirov, Joe Smith and MarshaAnn Zimmerman
