This month the La Grande Rotary Club launches a community literacy program aimed at encouraging families to Read Together! Airing at the Granada Theater on all three screens, previews will invite parents and children to redeem their admission ticket for a free book at Cook Memorial Library. Inside each book are video links to instructions on how to read with different age ranges of children. The program is sponsored by Windscapes Marketing and the Granada Theater, Mountain Valleys Reading Council, the Cook Memorial Library, and La Grande Rotary.

911 at the Pentagon

Christy Wheeler, retired Navy Commander, spoke at noon Rotary this past week. She gave a detailed perspective of what her experiences were on 9/11 at the Pentagon. While the loss of life that day of 125 Department of Defense employees was high, the toll could have been much higher considering 10,000 people who work at the building. The sector that was hit was undergoing renovations so was lightly occupied. Further, the building was so solidly constructed that the plane only penetrated the bottom two floors. Individuals on the top two floors escaped before the building collapsed.  Although Christy was uninjured on that day, she still feels the impact of that plane and the tragedy of that day.
