Christ Child Society donates 1,000 books to Harbor Springs students – Petoskey News-Review

HARBOR SPRINGS — It was an enjoyable afternoon for Harbor Springs third grade students this past Wednesday.
All of Harbor Springs Public Schools third grade students on Oct. 27 walked down the hill from their school to the Harbor Springs Lyric Theatre in downtown Harbor Springs.
At the Lyric, Scott Langton, executive director of the theater, along with Kathy Schroeder, past president of The Christ Child Society of Northern Michigan, were on hand and ready with popcorn, the movie “Charlotte’s Web” and a new book to present to every child.
With October being recognized as a month of service by the National Christ Child Society organization, the local chapter based in Harbor Springs set a literacy goal of 1,000 books being in the hands and homes of 1,000 students in the Northern Michigan area that Christ Child Society serves.
Books were also distributed through the Women’s Resource Center, Safe House, the Harbor Springs Historical museum, McLaren Northern Michigan emergency department, Concord Academy and the Crooked Tree Arts Center.
After viewing the movie at the theater, each child was able to pick a book to take with them and keep.
Christ Child Society is an ecumenical, non-denominational 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which serves the needs of infants and children across Northern Michigan without prejudice.
