On September 9, 2017, seventy people came together to improve literacy in Chatham County, and had a great time doing it. They attended the Fall for Literacy Luncheon at the Siler City Country Club and enjoyed a delicious lunch and an entertaining program of speakers.
Cecilia Budd Grimes, a Southern born and bred lady, took the audience on a fun romp through Southern recipes and Southern rules. Her talk was a home run. She drew much laughter while sharing about all things Southern. All attendees received a free copy of Ms. Grimes’s book What It Means to Have a Southern Wedding. And one person at each table won an additional door prize.
All proceeds from the luncheon directly fund Chatham Literacy’s free instruction for adult learners. This is an important annual fundraising and awareness raising event for Chatham Literacy. Chatham Literacy provides free tutoring to adults in reading, writing, English for Speakers of Other Languages, workforce soft skills, as well as citizenship and GED preparation.
A special thank you to everyone who attended.
