Greencastle Rotary Club Partners with Round Barn Daycare

 

On Friday, April 19, members of the Board of Directors from the Greencastle Rotary Club visited Round Barn Daycare for a new program to help get books in the hands of the kids in the community.

This program was started a couple years ago and books were donated to the Putnam County Library.  It was a great partnership for the club and it was decided to expand the project to our local daycares and preschools.

“The Rotary Club will be donating a book signed by our weekly guest speaker, each week to Round Barn Daycare.  Along with this Wabash Capital donated a shelf to complete Rotary Corner at Round Barn.  I was fortunate enough that my son spent 5 years at Round Barn and it seemed like a great fit for our club to start this project with them, I reached out to the director, Trisha Fulford and she loved the idea” said Brooke Trissel.

President Jared Jernagan, Vice President, Brooke Trissel, and Treasurer Ginger Scott presented Round Barn Daycare Director, Trisha Fulford, and some students with the shelf and first round of books.

The Greencastle Rotary Club plans to partner with daycares and preschools across the county each year to supply books and help promote childhood literacy.
