Exciting Year for Literacy for Life!

It is hard to believe that we are in almost a month into 2018! We are so excited about this year!

First and foremost, Literacy for Life Foundation is celebrating our 20-year anniversary! 20 years of bringing family and adult literacy programs to the communities of the MD of Foothills! We are so grateful for the support of the communities, staff, volunteers and donors. Our success is a reflection on all of you – so thank you! We are in the midst of planning a celebration and look forward to sharing with all of you the plans once they are finalized.

Family Literacy Day is January 27, 2018. This is a national Canadian event that draws attention to the importance of reading and engaging the whole family in learning activities. Once again this year we have partnered with the school divisions and libraries in our community for our Family Literacy Day Bingo Card Challenge!

All students in Grade 3 will be coming home with a bingo card that encourages the whole family to participate in literacy activities together! If you don’t have a child in Grade 3 then swing by one of the libraries – High River Library, Okotoks Library or Sheep River Library – and pick up a card and get everyone in the house involved! Once you have completed your card, drop it off at any of the 3 libraries and be entered in to win a fabulous Family Fun Pack which includes day passes to family fun facilities, board games and a gift certificate for pizza!!

We would like to thank Okotoks Orthodontics for their corporate sponsorship with this program! We have had tremendous support this year from so many businesses that have donated passes to help create these prize packs so thank you to all of them as well!
