Today is Raise a Reader Day, and Port Alberni will be a buzz with people everywhere supporting Literacy!
Here's the basic schedule of events.
From 8:30 to 10:30 look for local celebrities and volunteers selling Newspapers to support Literacy all over Port Alberni!
The Alberni Valley Bulldogs will be at Tim Horton's from 7:30 to 9:00 to be sure to drop down and see them. Maybe even see if you can get breakfast out of them for me. I'm a fan of the Everything Bagel - toasted with Herb and Garlic Cream Cheese :)
Tim's also has their SMILE COOKIES back for another year with funds raised from their sales going to Raise a Reader.
To finish the day off I'll be on location for 93.3 THE PEAK from the RBC Tent in front of the Alberni Valley Times building from 11 to 1 today for "Recycle for Reading" where you are encouraged to donate your bottles as they will be worth TWICE as much as the Provincial Government will match dollar for dollar the value and donate it right back to Port Alberni's Raise a Reader efforts!
For your troubles, you get a receipt for a Hot Dog and a Drink so come visit the Tent!
