Thank you Seven Lakes Kiwanis Club for your generous donation to our 2020-2021 Young Authors Writing Project! We are extremely grateful to be included as one of their many child-centered donations for the children of Moore County! The Moore County Celebration had to be canceled for this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but we're already planning for the 2022 Young Author's Project and the Seven Lakes Kiwanis Club is again supporting us in this endeavor.
