Rodding For Reading 2018

The sweet smell of unburned hydrocarbons hit my nose and I knew I’d arrived. Rodding For Reading is a classic car show in support of The Literacy Group of Waterloo Region. These old cars brought me right back to my youth when gas was very cheap indeed. The Lead Kings Car Club provided the beautiful machinery. We lucked out with perfect weather and a great turnout.

The Literacy Group provides a number of great programs helping adults improve their skills, such as reading, writing, mathematics or using modern electronics. I volunteer with TLG helping people update their IT skills and really enjoy seeing the progress made by our students. Our volunteer work is free, but the cost of running our programs is not. Rodding For Reading is crucial for raising funds and awareness for the important work done by The Literacy Group.
