Rotarians Dave and Marilee Breeding read to children at the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County.

FALLBROOK – Members of the Rotary Club of Fallbrook volunteered their afternoon to read to the children of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County for their fourth annual Rotary Reads Day.

Rotarians visited six 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 distributed books for each child to take home and spent time with club members making Dr. Seuss-inspired snacks.

"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," Allison Barclay, the CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County, said. "It has become an annual tradition for us and it's always a great way to celebrate National Read Across America Day and Dr. Seuss' birthday."

Hazel Smith and Lorena Ochoa show their new books, donated by Fallbrook Rotary Club.

More than 600 books were handed out for the children to take home. Club members could choose a new book to take home and keep. After picking out their books, the children shared their books, reading with their friends.

The mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of North County is "to inspire and enable all young people, especially those that need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens."
