Go Nuts for Reading!

The Richmond Flying Squirrels are pleased to announce that the Flying Squirrels Reading Program, “Go Nuts for Reading!” is back for its tenth season! This year’s program, which will run through Wednesday, March 20th 2019, is open to all CTES to participate! After reading 8 books and signing your child’s bookmark, your child will receive a FREE baseball voucher to the 6:35 pm April 18th baseball game. It will be a fun-filled night, beginning with a school parade around the diamond and ending with (fingers crossed) a win for our Flying Squirrels!! Look for more information in the Cub Chronicle and lets “play ball!”
