Seniors at the VAC Lunch and Learn/Read Muskegon

March 23, 2023, 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Varies by age and municipality.
Most of us can’t imagine what life would be like without the ability to read, but the fact, tens of thousands of adults in Muskegon County can’t read well enough to fill out job applications, help their children with school work, or manage their health. Since 2005, Read Muskegon has been offering literacy tutoring and small group classes for adults and children throughout Muskegon County, including adults incarcerated in the county jail. By doing so, Read Muskegon is building healthier families, more productive workplaces, and stronger communities.

Come and join us for lunch and a presentation by Melissa Moore, Executive Director of Read Muskegon. Melissa will share what Read Muskegon is doing in our county to reduce illiteracy in Muskegon County.

What is their impact in a typical year? 250 adults received individualized instruction, 85 volunteers contribute over 2,700 hours of their time helping people read. 3,000 adults and children are reached through events and community outreach, 4,000 books and other resources are distributed to families and more!

This is a free luncheon to the following participating municipalities:

  • Blue Lake Township
  • City of Whitehall
  • Fruitland Township
  • White River Township
  • Whitehall Township
If you are not a part of the Senior Millage Participating Municipalities, the cost of lunch is $7.00 per person and is payable upon registration. For more information, contact Kathleen English/Enrichment at (231) 893-1000 x 2010 or email: kathleenenglish@wlace.org
