Literacy Tea Celebrates Reading for All Ages

More than 270 people attended the 3rd Annual Literacy Tea on Sunday, March 29 at John Bapst Memorial High School to benefit Literacy Volunteers.

Maine children’s author Lynn Plourde read her book, The Dumpman's Treasures.  The book depicts a man who values books but is unable to read them. When the local children learn this, they help him learn to read. 

Community members decorated more than 30 tables using different children’s books as themes. 

This year's Tea raised nearly $15,000 and included more than $17,000 of in-kind support. Literacy Volunteers raises 100% of its annual budget and helps more than 300 area adults improve their literacy skills.
