I was a Page for Representative Brown at the Roundhouse yesterday and I spoke to both Rep. Brown and Rep. Pacheco about my project! I also spoke to the Rio Rancho City Council about my project and from that I am now working on interviews with both the Albuquerque Journal and Rio Rancho Observer!
Stay tuned to channel 4 and watch for their Hometown Heroes segment! I am being interviewed by them on Monday at the hospital. I currently don't know when it will air but I'll keep you posted!
A huge thank you to all of the recent sponsors! Check the Sponsors page for the new members! Also, I picked up books from the donation box at Council and I couldn't believe the amount of books! Thank you to all who left books there.
Finally, the BOOK BALL!! Calling all Girl Scouts! I will be putting on a kick off dance that will include a reading corner, bookmark making, hair braiding, waltz lessons, and information about the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Awards. The Ball will be April 13th, 2013 at Paradise Hills United Methodist Church from 2pm-4pm. Troops are challenged to a book drive, the troop to bring in the most books to be donated to the library will win a Dairy Queen gift card for their troop!! I am asking that each Girl, Adult, Non-Girl Scout tag-a-long, and other attendees pay $2 admission. All Girl Scouts will receive a patch! Please RSVP to StartMyLibrary@gmail.com, please include the number of Girls and Adults and a contact name and phone #. I hope to see you all there!!
I believe that's all for now, but I'm sure I'm forgetting something!
Thank you for all of your support, I couldn't have gotten this far without you. This journey has had some ups and some downs but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. Start My Library will be launching in just a few weeks and I am soo very happy to have made it to this point.
