The Ashland Kiwanis Club volunteers each year to read to students at Bellview Elementary School as part of the DEAR program. DEAR is the acronym for Drop Everything and Read. Kiwanis was honored recently at a Bellview Life Skills Assembly attended by all students and teachers. Awards were given to this year's Kiwanis reading volunteers Russ Chadick, Pam Parker and Ron Parker. Handing out the awards were Bellview's Rebecca Gyarmathy, reading specialist, and Hazel Smith, librarian.
