UP June 2010 pictureOn 23 to 25 April, the Golden Key Pretoria Chapter held their annual World Book Day and Global Youth Day Service projects where they took the children from the Danville rooms to a nearby park where everyone participated in different activities ranging from 3-legged racing to a treasure hunt. Afterwards all enjoyed lunch together. The chapter donated books to the Danville Rooms as well as to UNICA School for Autism. The day was filled with fun literacy activities as well as face-painting. The kids at UNICA were also sponsored with toys, some of which were educational. (Books were sponsored by Exclusive Books, Brooklyn Mall).
