Itís a unique experience to hear a story about a character who is sitting in the same room. Thatís exactly the experience that local children and families got at this monthís Families Together Dinner and Reading, sponsored by Yachats Youth and Families Activities Program.

Thanks to YYFAPís association with Scholastic Literacy Partnerships, Clifford the Big Red Dog was on hand for the most recent event, held Friday, April 26 at the Yachats Community Presbyterian Church. Clifford assisted YYFAP Director Alice Beck in reading a story aloud to the group of mostly pre-school aged children, as well as giving away Clifford books to all present, followed by a spaghetti dinner for the children, their families and the rest of the community.
