TODAY, Tuesday, November 30 is #GivingTuesday. Our goal is to raise $3,000 to support critical roof repairs to the McLain Family Chapel in the Trees. The roof of this place of reflection and gathering is in dire need of replacement as many of the wooden shingles are completely rotten and are allowing the elements into the space.

Help raise the roof to ensure our students and visitors can continue to enjoy this space with a gift of $25 or more at www.hindman.org/donate!

Being a dulcimer player, this is truly giving me cold chills. What an amazingly gracious gift. I am so excited to realize the precious hands that will learn to play those beautiful instruments. That 5th one over I can't wait to hear it played.

What a blessed 💝

Wonderful!

Awesome!

On November 11, 2021 our ReadingCorp Members at Carr Creek Elementary held a day of literacy to celebrate our local veterans with our students and community.  In partnership with the school’s resource center director Becky Pigman and Early Steps Coordinator, Tammy Jacobs, our members supplied literacy materials to each grade K-8th involving military themes to introduce the holiday. 

During the school day we had a guest speaker, Spc. Chase C. Burkle of the US Army, join us to read to grades K-4th a book intitled Veterans : Heroes in our Neighborhood. The book was then discussed with the children and words pointed out that corresponded with the materials we had passed out previously. The students were then encouraged to ask questions about the military careers.Image attachmentImage attachment
