The Burlington Sunrise Rotary Club would like to thank the Burlington Rotary Club for partnering with us on our Imagination Library Initiative.  Imagination Library is a charity established by Dolly Parton, whose organization sources top quality children's books from publishers at low costs and then works with local partners, like our Rotary clubs, to enroll participants and share in the cost of distributing the books.  In the past 8 years, the Sunrise Club has facilitated the donation of over 30,000 books to children in Burlington.  Any parent can register their child to receive a book in the mail monthly through age 5.  The program has been successful, and the partnership between our two clubs will help make it more sustainable. 
Our clubs will also be collaborating on this year's Rotary Spelling Bee, which will be held on Thursday, September 30, in the Maple Ballroom at UVM's Davis Center.  Companies or groups can sponsor teams of 2 or more spellers to participate in this fun event, and our hope is that it will be successful enough to not only keep the books flowing into the homes of Burlington kids, but to expand the program to include other towns.  Please use the contact options on our website if you're interested in participation.
