The annual “Lit for Literacy” Jamboree, promotes literacy with fun games and activities for the entire family. The Jamboree’s purpose is to increase the value of literacywithin the community by promoting the benefits of reading.
It’s hard to believe, but it’s time for the 2nd Annual “Lit for Literacy” Jamboree. Last year, we had approximately 450 people attend. This year, we’re looking for an even bigger crowd.
The event will take place Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at the R.O.B., which is located at 245 South Church Street in Lake City. The purpose of the jamboree is to increase the value of literacy within the community by promoting the benefits of literacy in a culturally appealing manner.
Just like last year, there will be a ton of literacy-based games, food and entertainment. Natasha Robinson, a Gullah storyteller from St. Helena, South Carolina will be the special guest. In addition to performances from Natasha, the morning will start off with a walking book character parade and end with a literacy-focused hip hop competition. Participants could win up to $150 gift card from Barnes & Noble for first place, $100 Barnes & Noble gift card for second place, and $75 Barnes & Noble gift card for third place. During the carnival-like celebration of literacy, popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones will be available. There will be plenty of literacy-based games and activities for attendees to participate in---from infant on up! Most importantly, every child that attends the jamboree will get to select a free book to take home. I would like to take the opportunity to personally invite you to this celebration of literacy. Feel free to bring the entire family, church family, and/or friends!
