      Hi Pamela,

      Sorry for missing your comment until now. The workshop was postponed due to weather, and I believe there is still space! I have passed on your inquiry to Kathy. Please feel free to contact her directly at

      Thank you!

    I am interested in when the next R.E.A.D workshop is scheduled.
    My yellow lab, Butterscotch, has been certified with Therapy Dogs International and we have done visits at a nursing home. She is 13 years old and has recently been troubled with arthritis which makes hospital and nursing home visits too demanding physically. She is still very social with a very gentle temperament. We would be very interested in the literacy volunteer opportunities. A neighbor had recommended possibilities with IndyReads who gave me your information. Butterscotch has been around young children and as a retired teacher I know she would be fantastic. I would appreciate any direction you can give me about getting started.
    Thank you very much!
