We're bringing Ride for Reading to the Mountains!

We're looking for volunteers to help us deliver books to elementary schools in Fort Davis (on Thursday, January 23rd) and in Terlingua (on Friday, January 24) through the Ride for Reading program, with special thanks to regional partners (listed below) and Better World Books...

Here's a short video of a Ride for Reading book selection at an elementary school:
And another on the delivery by bicycle!
Would you like to join us by riding your bicycle to the elementary schools in Fort Davis and/or Terlingua?

Information on the Fort Davis delivery on Thursday, January 23rd is here and here.

Information on the Terlingua delivery on Friday, January 24th is here and here.

Many thanks to folks who've made this happen:  the schools in Fort Davis and Terlingua, Don Baumgardt of El Paso's, Fort Davis Chamber of Commerce, Stone Village Tourist Camp in Fort Davis, Big Bend Ranch State Park, Davis Mountains State Park, Big Bend Resorts and Adventures in Terlingua, and Brewster County Tourism Council, and of course, our own volunteers and members of the board of our regional Texas Mountain Trail non-profit organization.  Y'all are GREAT!
