Pinn Community Center News

We’ve held out posting a summary of Accio Books because the HPA still hasn’t announced the winner of the Chapter Cup. But our chapter managed to gather and donate a total of 5,003 books in 2011! That’s AMAZING!

One of the places we donated to is the David R. Pinn Community Center in Fairfax. I just found this article this morning in Patch about the center undergoing renovations: http://burke.patch.com/articles/after-renovations-pinn-community-center-re-opens Check out the photo of the bookshelf–you might see a few books on it from us! If memory serves, we brought them 4 boxes. There were lots of strong kids who helped carry the boxes inside the center for me 🙂

Apparently they had a showing at the center for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 on June 24. I hope that inspired some of the kids to read the Harry Potter books we donated there!
