LITERACY W e e k Lawyers for Literacy Committee collects Bears and Books for National Adoption Day Georgina Jimenez-Orosa and Melynda Melear are two of our many wonderful volunteers who collected books and bears for our Lawyers for Literacy Committee’s annual Bear and Book drive to benefit National Adoption Day. Every child and every sibling who participated in National Adoption Day last month received a new stuffed animal and a new book. Older children received a Target gift certificate. Thank you for making a difference! Literacy Day in the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens Sheryl Wood reads to children in the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens about Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor. A number of Lawyers for Literacy Committee members recently participated in the 10th annual Literacy Day at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. Lawyers for Literacy Chair Brad Avakian says our members had a great time reading to local 2nd graders, answering questions about the law, and enjoying some fresh air with our colleagues. Each of the students received a pocket Constitution to take home, thanks to the Florida Bar. A special thank you to our Lawyers for Literacy Chair Brad Avakian, along several committee members including Andrew Kwan, Sheryl Wood, Kelly Schulz, Mary Grecz, Jennifer Soberal and Melynda Melear PBCBA BAR BULLETIN 20 LEADING PRACTICE MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE 10% Discount for Bar Members
