Members of the Zachary Kiwanis Club visited Zachary Early Learning Center on April 14 as part of the club’s annual literacy effort, Let’s Read.

The service organization invited several guests to help read “Kindergarten ABC” by Jacqueline Rogers to 238 prekindergartners in 15 classrooms at the school as well as donated enough books so that every child received a copy.

“The students were so excited and happy to receive the books, and we really liked interacting with them,” said Stella Ashford, Kiwanian. “We were also fortunate to have the guest readers that we did.”

Zachary Mayor David Amrhein, Fire Chief Danny Kimble, Police Chief David McDavid, Deputy Fire Chief Glenn Triche and Ashford’s husband, Marvin, joined Kiwanians Mike Alu, Ashford, Audrey Nabors Jackson, Bruce Langley, Erby Magee and Jacqueline Moore for the literary event.
