Last Meeting (7/15/21)

We put bookplate labels in books to be used at Gigi's Playhouse in September.

           

GiGi's Playhouse is a national nonprofit organ\tization that provides a variety of programs to children and adults with Down syndrome, and support to their families. They have over 50 playhouses around the United States and Mexico. All of Their programs are free.
One of the programs is one-on-one tutoring in both math and literacy. They provide both in-person and virtual tutoring depending on the preference of the participant's family.

To kick off their Fall term, they are holding a reading event, "Reading is Dog-Gone Fun", in collaboration with the United Way and Beesley's Paw Prints. Beesley's will be bringing in therapy dogs to the event so participants can read to the dogs, interact with the dogs, and learn about dog safety. The Fort Myers-Edison Kiwanis Club will provide a free book to every participant that they can enjoy and read at home.

The event will be held Saturday, September 25, 1:00-3:00.

Besides reading with the therapy dogs, they will have other volunteer program leaders present that day to provide information to families, participants, and the general public on what programs they provide - all for free. Some of their other programs include yoga for kids, teens and adults, art for adults, developmental programs for infants and for young children, a social club for adults, as well as a new fitness program for adults they are in the midst of developing.
