Chaska Rotary Club once again sponsored the Free Book area at the annual Hooked on Books…and the Arts, too! event on February 1. Thanks to the club’s financial donation, each child attending the event was able to choose a free book to take home. This year, more than 1,200 books were distributed to kids of all ages attending the event. Several rotarians were on hand to help hand out books including: Sheryl Hough, Steve Mueller, Rick Ness, Gretchen Oppriecht, Michael Schnabel, Lorie Treff Wayne Ward, Neil Wingert & Sarah Carlson, and Lori Goeman. Hooked on Books is a partnership between Eastern Carver County Schools Community Education and the Carver County Library.
