NCRC's kickoff was a Night on Literacy Lane. Even though all the construction in Downtown Minot created some challenges, we kept up with tradition and partnered with downtown businesses to create yet another memorable night!
We started our night quickly discussing all of the upcoming events, reminding our members about our amazing Literacy Grant and then we split into groups.
Members traveled downtown visiting Main Street Books to check out the latest and greatest books, as well as some oldies, but goodies! Val Stadick, amazed our members with some original Dr. Seuss prints and we learned about Dr. Seuss' secret artwork!
Another stop along Literacy Lane was The Taube Art Museum. Unfortunately due to construction we weren't able to get to the Taube, but we were able to move the art lesson to The Parker Center. So we had Taube Art at the Parker! Members worked with acetate paper and created art projects to go with children's books!
Members were able to refuel, refresh and reflect with a quick little appetizer and beverage. They were also greeted by a local author and had the chance to purchase her book!
Literacy Lane is one of our favorite events and keeps our members coming back year after year (even with construction hassles)!
