FALLBROOK – For the second straight year, members of the Rotary Club of Fallbrook volunteered their afternoon to read to the children of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County.

Rotarians visited five of the Boys & Girls Clubs’ after school sites in Fallbrook and one at Vallecitos Elementary School in Rainbow. After reading some of their favorite stories, Rotarians also helped distribute books that were donated by the Rotary Club of Fallbrook.

“We’re so thrilled to have the Rotary Club of Fallbrook partner with our club again this year to help instill a love of reading in our youth members,” said Allison Barclay, the chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County. “It was a great way to celebrate National Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss’ birthday.”

In total more than 600 books were handed out for kids to take home thanks to the efforts and generosity of the Rotary Club of Fallbrook. Club members were very excited to choose a brand new book they could take home and keep.
