Mortar Board donates Books to Tale-Waggers

Tori, chairperson of CMU's Mortar Board "Trick or Treat for Books," is shown here with co-chairs of MPMKC Tale-Waggers, delivering more than 100 books gathered in the recent drive. CMU's Mortar Board is a chapter of the national honor society and literacy programs are one of their annual events.  MPMKC is delighted to have this support from CMU.

Tale-Waggers™

 
Begun in 2002, our committee works to improve literacy by letting children read to dogs in a quiet setting. The first such program in Mid-Michigan, sessions are in schools, libraries, and by invitation. Look for a Tale-Waggers™ session at the Mt. Pleasant Veterans Memorial Library and Alma Public Library several times a year. 
 
Formed by MPMKC in 2002, we officially changed the name of this committee in 2005. Each Tale-Waggers™ kid receives a free book at the end of a 4-week  session. More than $1200 worth of books have been given to community children since 2002, through this committee. For background information on Tale-Waggers™ click here, or Contact Chairperson: Alice Jenicke.

HATS Fundraiser/Walk
In October 2005 our members braved the cold, rainy day to help raise money for HATS programs. We have continued to participate in this activity each year since then.
