Pike County bicentennial member Leigh Anne Windham, who attended the event, commented, “The members of Reunion Troy, our local project for ALABAMA200, were excited to learn that Reach Out and Read- Alabama and ALABAMA200 had partnered on the 10th Annual Rx Summer Reading Program by bringing children across our state the book, Alabama, My Home Sweet Home. This delightful children’s book tells the story of Camellia Bear as she travels the state of Alabama enjoying all of the wonderful things we have to celebrate in our great state. Charles Henderson Child Health Center held their Rx for Summer Reading event last week where the book was read to the children by members of our community. What a wonderful way to celebrate Alabama’s Bicentennial!”
