Our Annual General Meeting for 2023

We held our Annual General Meeting recently. We'd like to thank the Riverside Branch of the Windsor Public Library for hosting us.

Among the more officious pieces of a meeting of this nature, we had the opportunity to speak with Kristin Raymond, Coordinator of the Book Buddy Program and Michael Regier, Coordinator of the Adult Literacy Program about their work, and we heard from Big Brothers Big Sisters Windsor-Essex and Bob Cameron from the Downtown Windsor Community Collaborative about some ideas we are eager to support. We look very forward to new partnerships and new ways to support literacy!
