Eleanor Arno honored for her volunteer efforts by the Macomb County Board of Commissioners!

feature image

In May, the word went out... The Macomb County Board of Commissioners was looking for Macomb County's most outstanding volunteers to honor in a ceremony at their June 25, 2015 meeting. Here at Macomb Literacy Partners, one person came to mind immediately, Eleanor Arno. Eleanor has over 30 of experience in the field of adult literacy many of those years were spent helping adults in Connecticut and Vermont. Since becoming a volunteer for Macomb Literacy Partners, in 2008, she’s served as a volunteer literacy tutor for four adult students. Each and every one improved their reading ability several grade levels. In the last year, Eleanor was called upon to set up a class for blind, Chaldean refugees, who, in addition to needing help with Braille, also needed to learn to speak English as a second language. Four days a week you will find her in the MLP office, answering phones, writing letters, formulating tutor training curriculum, and helping with events. Eleanor Arno is what we call an MVP, “Most Valued Partner”, and having her service celebrated and honored by the Macomb County Board of Commissioners was a wonderful acknowledgement.

Run 2 Read 2015 the biggest ever! Run 2 Read 2015 was held at Stony Creek Metropark on the West Branch Bike trails. 10K Runners and 5K Runners and Walkers all enjoyed the challenge of the trails. As luck would have it, the rain and cold weather held off until the race was over. Everyone was thankful for that! This year's race featured Tech Shrits in place of cotton tees and medals to the first place runners in each age catagory. Many thanks to the 260 participants who made Run 2 Read 2015 a success. Without our valued sponsors Run 2 Read would not be possible. Thank you Russ Milne Ford, L & L Products, 7-11, Macomb Chiropractic, Kiwanis of Clinton Township, TJX Companies, Hosey Foot and Ankle, Continental Services, and Dorothy and Win Hasler!
