Spartanburg Youth Council's Literacy Day - April 17, 2008

The Mayor's Service Board is a brand-new initiative of the Spartanburg Youth Council and the United Way.

Although small now, the goal is to eventually have one representative from each service and leadership group at each public and private high school in the county. Membership is open to any interested high school students. Its purpose is to encourage leadership through service in our community.

The Mayor's Service Board, after learning of many of the issues Spartanburg faces, decided to focus on youth and education for 2008.

They chose to adopt a school, and after touring some, and meeting with the principals, chose Mary H. Wright.

They then decided to hold a Reading Celebration on April 17th, Spartanburg Youth Council's Literacy Day.

Reading Celebration @ MH Wright: 2:30-5:30 on Thursday April 17th.

The event will include a kick-off with the Mayor, a birthday celebration for Principal Pat Paul, pizza, cake, and ice cream; reading games and activities, face painting, a moon bounce, door prizes, and free books for the students!

The Mayor's Service Board has worked hard to solicit donations for food, drinks, and prizes, in addition to collecting nearly 1,000 books in just a few short weeks! Need more information? Contact L. Hurley at 864-562-4199.
