Fort GreeneVille Chapter DAR is inviting school age children to a storytime at the Gathering at Garst on Saturday, July 28th.
At 1:00pm at the J. Burkett Encampment Tent, John and Karen Burkett and DAR chapter members will have a storytime based on “The Lewis and Clark for Kids” book written by Janice Herbert. The Burketts will be in period dress in order to give a visual of the Lewis and Clark time period.
Also included in the storytime will be a craft time and treats. Afterwards there will be a drawing for a copy of the book to a child participating in the storytime. The book was donated by the Garst Gift Shop to the DAR chapter’s literacy program.
Education is one of the cornerstones of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Across the country, Daughters are meeting the challenge of educating the public by emphasizing the importance of being able to read. By supporting literacy, it enables self respect and confidence besides reaching life goals. Storytimes are a way of encouraging parents to instill a love of reading in their children.
