Flippin’ for Books another success (11/27/2013)
From: Lezlea Dahlke

On behalf of Winona Public Library and Winona Early Childhood Initiative

Flippin’ for Books 8th Annual Literacy and Wellness Fair was a success this year thanks to all of the parents, children and community members who attended. Over 300 young children and their families came to Winona Senior High on November 9th for storytelling, a free pancake breakfast, and literacy or health-related activities.

Thanks to a SMIF BookStart grant, we were able to give away a book to each child who attended. Many area businesses donated items for the pancake breakfast that was prepared by Cindi Smith, our favorite high school cook, and served by National Honor Society student volunteers.

WSU Children’s Lit students and Circle K members, as well as local AmeriCorps members, volunteered their time at the craft and activity tables. Individuals from a wealth of organizations and businesses in Winona showcased their programs to parents and caregivers at the resource booths. WSU Galaxy gymnasts, Park Rec and YMCA staff kept kids engaged and tumbling with gym activities. Others shared their talents with storytelling, face painting, and photography.

We are proud to be a part of a community that comes together each year to support the early learning and health of its youngest citizens.

Thank you!
