CLiF serves many thousands of children each year across New Hampshire and Vermont – a service area of 19,000 square miles. I’m on the road a great deal, giving presentations and meeting with kids, parents, teachers, coordinators, presenters, and donors.
Thursday, December 12, 2013 was an unusually long day for me: 17 hours and 372 miles.
Earlier this week, a manilla envelope packed with hand-written thank-you notes arrived at the CLiF office. They were all written by English Language Learner students at McLaughlin Middle School and Beech Street School, where CLiF presenters Duncan McDougall and Marty Kelley had given storytelling presentations and lead book giveaways for nearly 400 students in November.
