Auction to raise funds for Rosanna’s Readers

SURRY — Surry Elementary School is holding an online silent auction beginning Friday, July 31 at 8 a.m. and ending Aug. 9 at midnight to raise funds for Rosanna’s Readers.

The program gives a new book to each Surry Elementary student on his or her birthday in memory of the late Rosanna McFarland of Blue Hill, who had been a reading recovery teacher at the school.

Rosanna “molded a cadre of readers, arming them with skills and tools to employ as the materials get more difficult,” according to a statement from the school. “Our goal is to continue her legacy for many more generations of able readers.”
