This year, the Family Reading Partnership celebrates fifteen years in Ithaca! The organization strives to create a culture of literacy by promoting reading within families and through distributing free books to children. We applaud and support their efforts to instill a a love of books and reading in the community. Walter is proud to pose by a 15th birthday lawn sign in our front yard.

I’ve been training for Women Swimmin’ since May, and I’m looking forward to the August 18 (non-competitive) swim 1.2 miles across Cayuga Lake to raise money for HospiCare and Palliative Care Services of Tompkins County. HospiCare provides compassionate end-of-life services to community residents as well as grief counseling for those who have experienced the death of a loved one. I hope you will consider sponsoring me in the event to help support this important community organization.
You can donate online via my fundraising page, or, if a check is easier, let me know. (If you have trouble with the link, click on the Women Swimmin’ icon in the left sidebar of the blog.) Every little bit helps!
If you are in Ithaca, come down to the Ithaca Yacht Club on the morning of August 18 to help celebrate! Three hundred women are expected to participate in the event.
