On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, our annual 3,2,1 Read Appreciation Breakfast was held at First Christian Church in Jeffersonville, IN. This event is themed around showing our appreciation to the volunteers who dedicate their time to helping struggling readers in grades 1st-3rd grade strengthen their reading skills and confidence. We show them appreciation through a free breakfast and a CIS gift. We also announce the 2017/2018 School Year Volunteer Totals at this event to show the volunteers the impact they are making on our community. The totals are as follows:
