Each year our club provides summer books to each of the youth in our community. Literacy is a cornerstone for our club’s efforts and helping youth to build their own personal library is something we’ve been doing for years! This year 3,500 books were provided for students at all local schools from Zephyr Cove to Meyers. In Grades Pre-K to 2nd, students received two books to keep, while 3rd to 8th graders got one to help with summer reading. We earn the money to fund this project through our Elegant Evening event and we also maintain our John Neimus Book fund in honor of our friend and educator.
