Rick Smith, IDA's CEO acknowledged our valued Orton Oaks with these words, "You are the guardians of our legacy. You are the ancestors of our passion to teach our children to read".
Many of our Orton Oaks could not join us this time. We plan to gather together again in the Fall to celebrate you!
A warm thank you to Piper Park who very kindly hosted this special event.
