milk, cookies, santa, and speed reading

This entire post from First Book Mahoning Valley is awesome:
Join us one and all for the first ever First Book-Mahoning Valley Speed Read
Milk and Cookies with Santa
at the Oakland Center for the Arts
on Tuesday, Dec. 18 at 7:00 pm.

Register now!
We will send you a pledge packet and information on the Speed Read event and First Book- Mahoning Valley. You collect pledges in advance and then come to the event where you will be invited on stage to read as many words as you can in 15 seconds.

Every $2.50 buys a new book for a child, but we need your help!

Not interested in reading, make a donation!

Have a child who loves to read? They can Speed Read as well!

Following the highly hysterical readings, Santa will be on the premises for last minute wishes. The first 500 children will receive a new book.
Milk and cookies will be available, as well as a basket raffle.
The event is free and open to the public. We hope you will Speed Read with us and help end illiteracy in our community.

Have an organization you would like to promote at our event? Just register to read, collect pledges, and when it is your turn to read take a minute (maybe 2) to tell everyone what you do! We want everyone who is revitalizing Youngstown to be heard !
