CHESTERTOWN — Chestertown Lions Club members recently presented a check for $2,000 to fund the One School, One Book program at Garnet Elementary School.
According to a Feb. 2 news release, the program was supported by a 50/50 funding effort of the local Lions Club and the charitable foundation of the Eastern Shore District 22B.
“We really appreciate the generosity of the Lions Club District 22B to support this very worthwhile project,” the release states.
Every student at Garnet Elementary School and the entire staff received a copy of “A Boy Called Bat,” by Elana Arnold.
Families are encouraged to read and discuss the book together at home. Activities are provided at school to enhance and enrich this shared reading experience, the release states.
The program will reportedly run the entire month of February.
