On Friday, March 5, 2022 the Coronado Junior Optimist Club held its annual carnival to promote literacy. During this free event, the community was invited to bring new or gently used books to be provided to a local organization for pregnant and young mothers. There were a total of 270 books donated! Additionally, the Coronado Junior Optimist Club members participated in Dr. Suess Birthday Party activities with the young participants. Some Junior Optimists were customed as Dr. Suess characters. JOI Advisor Erin Downey, and sponsoring Coronado Optimist Club members also participated in the annual event.
