Ralph Hamann introduced his guests, Ruth Reeves, Cloquet Community Education Director, and her 2 summer interns, who will update us on the Age to Age Program.
Ruth explained that Molly Johnson, the Age to Age coordinator, was called away today, so she asked the interns to introduce themselves. Both Gerard Sordelet and Emily Kangas are Cloquet High School grads, now both in college and home for the summer.
Age to Age is part of a Northland Foundation grant that has an intergenerational focus. This summer they are doing a community book read, where people from 15 to 100 are encouraged to read the book The Martian, which was made into a movie. So far, 40 people have signed up.
On August 4 a big event takes place at The Avenue Coffee Shop in the old Chief Theater, where people will discuss the book and have food and prizes. The first 25 students to sign up get a free book, or you can get a book on Amazon.com or check one out at the library or Community Ed office. It is a good, quick book to read, with many life and death decisions.
Sign up for a good read!
