(21 December 2011 Eleuthera, The Bahamas) The Rotaract Club of Eleuthera partnered with the Tarpum Bay Library in their 4th Annual Christmas Party for the children of Tarpum Bay and surrounding settlements.  During this event, children received a surprise visit from Santa Claus who read popular holiday stories and gave each child a gift bag filled with books, toys, and candy. Members of the Rotaract Club of Eleuthera served as volunteers for face painting, monitoring the bouncy castle, and serving food.

The Rotaract Club of Eleuthera and Tarpum Bay Library have partnered on other initiatives throughout the year to encourage youth literacy. For example, the club organized a Trick or Read event for Halloween where children received school supplies and treats for playing reading games. Similarly, the children wrote papers about native plants and then took a field trip to the Bahamas National Trust’s Leon Levy Plant Preserve in Governor’s Harbour to learn more about them.

“We recognize the importance of teaching our young people to read and we look forward to our continued partnership with the Tarpum Bay Library,” said Tyson Morley, Director of Community Service and International Service for Rotaract Club of Eleuthera.
