Our program on the 12th of February was presented by Dr. Tyrone Carter. He is a local resident who provides science shows for school classes. He uses his shows to demonstrate to the kids that science is fun, and does demonstrations of scientific phenomena to get the point across.
His shows are a feature of the Minnesota Field Trip & Activity Library, a booklet that lists about 200 programs and places that have special features for kids.
Our Service Project on Tuesday, February 19th was sorting donated used books at Scenic Heights for our Reach Out and Read Grant headed by Don Draayer. Our Club divided into three teams and selected 20 boxes of books to donate to the Reach Out and Read Program.  Thank you to our club members for helping to promote child literacy in Minnesota!
