  Dear Friends of Literacy, We are sad to announce that our Luncheon on June 16th is canceled.  While we were truly looking forward to our 35th Anniversary event, this decision was an easy one to make. The Literacy Council is committed to the health and safety of our supporters, and to doing our part to contain the spread of the coronavirus. We will invite NC Poet Laureate Jaki Shelton-Green to join us next year and will send you updates on our students and programs in the near future.  We appreciate the dedication of our Luncheon Committee and the generosity of our sponsors for their leadership in supporting CFLC. We hope you and your family are staying safe and well.
