- 14 - OPERATION SCHOOL BELL: chairman, Linda Ledbetter, reports that we clothed 107 Georgetown, Jarrell and Florence school children at our Operation School Bell Spring Distribution event at Walmart on March 24. The school nurse at Jarrell Elementary also arrived that morning and selected items to restock her clothes closet at the school. A very nice, long article about our Operation School Bell program and the Assistance League of Georgetown Area appeared in the Sun on Wednesday, March 28, 2018, and we have had positive response from it. READING AND MORE: chairman, Denise Pezek reports that April is the last reading month of this year. Assistance League has bought over 1,000 books for the reading lab. The Reading Interventionist at Jarrell has asked that when the second elementary school is open, would it be possible to expand and have another grade (either third or first) read to us. Denise hopes to meet with the principal in April to talk about this and the new school plans. Doing a similar reading program is being discussed with the Florence Independent School District, who have requested this. SCHOLARSHIP: chairman, Donna Provence, reports that we have reviewed applications from all three Georgetown high school campuses, and selected some for review by anyone interested in reviewing them. The date for the review TBA. ASSIST A TEACHER: chairman Janice Bailey, reports that Pat Holland has asked Assist a Teacher to join her and speak at Kiwanis Club in May. Kathy Nelson will represent the committee, as Janice will be out of town. NEW FRIENDS: chairman Karen Ellsworth, Karen Ellsworth reports that seven volunteers helped with the March event at Autumn Leaves, and thanks those who stepped up to lead in her absence. The next party will take place on April 17 at 2:00 p.m., with 1:50 as the arrival time. She wants to thank all the awesome volunteers for their participation.
