Signature Program
 
     Born to Read:
       It is never too early to start reading. Beginning at birth, early literacy experiences make a
       difference and through the support of many local organizations the Traverse Bay Twilight
       Rotary Club has adopted a new signature project Born to Read to promote community
       literacy through outreach to families with newborn babies.
