Central Abaco Primary, Little Darlings Pre-School, Angels Academy, Cherokee Primary and Cooper’s Town Primary were all presented with a teacher’s gift from the visiting Rotarians who read some of the student’s favourite books to the classes.

Reading to children every September is becoming an annual event for the Rotary Club of Abaco.

The Rotary Club of Abaco has long been invested in literacy and youth programs. The Club sponsors two Interact Clubs on Abaco (Forest Heights and St. Francis.)

Earlier this year the Club also partnered with local church and outreach community, Third Space, to provide over 250 backpacks filled with a year’s worth of school supplies, to students in North and South Abaco.
