Storybook Tour Fundraiser

On March 21st from 1-3pm, MARL will be participating in the "Storybook Tour" fundraiser at the Lake Orion United Methodist Church. This fundraiser supports Orion Area Youth Assistance's Summer Camp Scholarship program, which gives scholarships to low income children who otherwise would not have the funds to attend a summer camp. During the event, children (and parents) from the community rotate through different rooms to hear a story and do an activity. MARL will be reading a story about rescue dogs and have one for the kids to meet!
