Yesterday I met with our Springfield steering committee for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library as the deadline nears for our first charity golf tournament. The event takes place at Highland Springs on October 19.
Although Dolly Parton’s people make it as easy as possible to place books into the hands of youngsters under five, each community that accepts her challenge is charged with raising the $25 per child per year it costs. Although we’re up to 2,000 children per month now (25 x 2,000 = 50,000/year), there are 9,000 children in our community and closer to 16,000 county-wide. We’ve come a long way but have a long way to go.
If our charity golf tournament is successful, it can add much needed money to support this important program. Click here for the information: https://www.facebook.com/imaginationlibrarysgf , http://www.uwozarks.com/our-impact/united-way-initiatives/imagination-library

We still have room for more teams to sign up so if you or anyone you know might be interested in entering the tournament and/or supporting it at some level, please share this information. Cut off for team registration is October 1 so timing is critical.
Thanks very much!
