TRYON—The Rotary Club of Tryon was excited to kick off this year’s Reading is Fundamental program at Tryon Elementary School last week.  

Rotarians visited with all of the students in the school to share the importance of reading and get the students excited about books. After the program, each student was able to select a book to take home.  

The Club will make multiple visits to the school this year, giving the students an opportunity to grow their home library.
