Irlen Syndrome and Dr Suess!

The Tadpoles and I went to a Magic Show and Dr Suess Event tonight at the High School that was sponsored by the local Lion's Club in order to raise awareness of Irlen Syndrome. Not sure what Irlen Syndrome is???...learn about it here Irlen Institute, Colored Lenses, Colored Overlays, Diagnosticians, Screeners.

Tomorrow, March 2nd, is the late Theodor Geisel's Birthday and is marked as Read Across America Day.

Reading is not only important...it is FUN!

I quilted this quilt today for the local quilt shop (LQS)...and the money earned was donated to the Ely Lion's Club so that colored Irlen eyeglasses can be purchased for our local families in need. I love to quilt and the fact that I can put my quilting to good use. It feels good to help others don't ya think?!?!
