In appreciation of all of our Atlanta BookPALS, our Annual Summer Appreciation Picnic was held on June 20th, 2009 at Riverside Park in Roswell, Georgia. Books donated by First Book were distributed to all of our volunteers to give to their students upon return to school in August. Piggly Wiggly Supermarket in Cleveland donated all of the soda for our event! Thank you Atlanta BookPALS for reading to all of the students throughout the 2008/2009 school year!
