Vocational and Imagination Library
First up will be Chris Monroe. He will tell us a bit about his life so we can get to know him better. Vocationals are always a favorite program for everyone.

Next we will have an  informational presentation and kick off of registrations for the Josephine County Imagination Library program. Rotarians are encouraged to bring kids or grand kids ages 0 to 5. The library will have someone there registering kids and we will explain the online registration and we will also have registration brochures. And there will be sample books and the 1 st  book for anyone who registers.
