A message from our committee chairman.

As everyone knows our project this year is Operation Literacy. I am VERY honored to be the chairman of Division 8 Operation Literacy program this year. When I first undertook this endeavor I did not realize the importance and urgency regarding illiteracy rate in the state of California. One of the great things that has happened is the fact that Division 8 can work hand in hand with the Grand Lodge Public Schools Advisory Council. Using both teams resources insures success of our project.

California ranks close to the bottom of all 50 states regarding literacy. That itself is scary enough, but with the economy being what it is and the State is still cutting school budgets, the kids need us Masons more than ever. We are partnering with a national group called "Raising-A-Reader". They have helped over 800,000 children through out the country and have a very good reputation for their system working well. The money we raise will go towards buying books to be circulated in kindergartners home every week. Also included in their "book bag" will include a DVD aimed at the parents or caregivers to teach the children how to read these books.

We will be announcing our program "Kick-off" soon. So please keep checking the web-site. And our big fund raising event is scheduled for June 20th. Stay tuned for more info on this exciting program.

Anyone that wants to help, either physically or financially,feel free  to contact me,


Jim Ridley
