Today, Oct. 11, copies of the Rossland News will be sold by high profile community members, including the mayor and council members, around downtown. The proceeds will be going towards Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy to help support literacy programs for the Greater Trail area.

CBAL offers a large assortment of programs to the area, which are free of charge and Rossland residents can take advantage of.

Programs include Mother Goose, Love 2 Learn, Parents as Literacy Supporters, English as a second Language Conversation Club and one on one tutoring.

If you’d like to make a difference for literacy in the community come out and buy a copy of the Rossland News, 100 per cent of the funds raised will go to support the programs in this area.

Black Press and CBAL will be working together this morning to raise funding for the programs and celebrate Reach a Reader Day, a day to promote literacy in the community.
