The Optimist Club of Gettysburg held its annual Reading Is Fundamental/Drop Everything And Read and The Gettysburg Middle School Outdoor Education Donation Dinner on April 2, 2014. Each year the Optimist Club of Gettysburg supports more than 19 youth related programs throughout the Gettysburg area that “Bring Out The Best In Kids”.

Representatives from Vida Charter School, Franklin Township Elementary, Lincoln Elementary and James Gettys Elementary attended this year’s meeting and made presentations of their respective reading programs. It was wonderful to hear the plans of this past years events and for the upcoming reading programs.

In addition to the local elementary schools, the Gettysburg Middle School was  on hand to receive a contribution for their Outdoor Education Program which is just around the corner.
