reading partners!! tonight i was lucky enough to join matt and michael at the volunteer center of san francisco and san mateo's annual awards banquet. they were one of two award winners for the best nonprofit volunteer management in these two counties, an amazing honor…and well worth it.
this picture is of michael, karen baker, and matt. karen baker was one of the main speakers during the program and is the california secretary of service and volunteering, and was such a nice woman, and very complimentary of reading partners.
there was also a raffle for all participants and matt won two tickets to the bats improv theatre in san francisco…it seems like it is heavy on "audience participation" but i think it's going to be a very fun evening. we have to use the tickets before july 31, i think it will be a very entertaining evening.
