Thanks to all of you who have supported our Get Caught Reading to a Child Calendar Fund Raiser! 

We have over 2000 calendars out across Alabama reminding people to READ to children …   A very enjoyable, FREE activity that helps children do well in school and  life. 

Thank YOU for taking time to read to the children you care about and helping to remind others to do the same!  

Don’t forget to get the 2017 Jean Dean RIF
“See the Need to Read” calendar when it is available in the Fall.

2016 JeanDean Rif Ride to Read

Soggy Ride to Read was still a BIG SUCCESS thanks to the GREAT VOLUNTEERS of JEAN DEAN RIF!!    Many thanks to all of you!!

Looks like we will net about $2500 from yesterday’s RIDE--  That is lots of books for lots of babies and VERY GOOD for a “bad weather” day.  Thanks for all of your hard work and super attitudes!   Our participants were positive about the event and are looking forward to next year.  I could not have done it without y’all!  Many thanks again to each  of you!!
