100 Years of Literacy!

On May 2, 2019, LVR held the 100 Years of Literacy Luncheon at the Country Club of Rochester. At the Luncheon we celebrates 2 things: 45 years of service to literacy by a dedicated volunteer, Rose-Marie Klipstein and 55 years of LVR empowering members of Monroe County to be fully engaged citizens.

Thank you to our Literacy Luncheon Leaders for your generous support!!!

Due to the generous support of the 100 attendees to the Luncheon, LVR was able to raise $12,000 for the newly renamed Rose-Marie Klipstein Fund.

The Rose-Marie Klipstein Fund allows for LVR to invest in itself so it can help adults in Monroe County overcome the many challenges that come with literacy and continue to empower lives through literacy.
