Over 150 people attended our Open House and Volunteer Recognition Event on Friday, April 29th, including volunteers, supporters, students and elected officials. The program included a message from Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and presentation of a proclamation by Pima County Supervisor Richard Elias to the Thomas R. Brown Family Foundation as a thank you for the funds to renovate several additional classrooms!
The event was a celebration of two wonderful gifts: our newly renovated classrooms and the unveiling of our completely transformed courtyard (thanks to Santa Rita Landscaping). The event also recognized the amazing tutors, coaches, pediatricians, students and office volunteers that make our programs possible.
Literacy Connects’ staff member Nick Granum provided musical entertainment for guests in the courtyard; a video slideshow of program highlights played in the tutoring center and delicious food was served as guests gathered to visit. One of the new classrooms showcased all of our programs with posters and displays, and amazing desserts were served to satisfy any sweet tooth!
As Literacy Connects grows and we move into our second year in our home located at 200 East Yavapai Road, we are filled with excitement at the opportunities and connections that will continue to be made as we expand in our space.
Thank you to all who joined us! If you have not had a chance to see all the changes, come on by!
