Members of the Rotary Club of Mesquite presented a $1,000 check to the Eureka Casino resort in support of its Mesquite Reads Community Initiative on Thursday, June 5, 2014.

The goal of the Mesquite Reads program is that every child in our community be able to read at grade level by the third grade.

The Eureka Casino Resort has committed to providing 100% of the funding for the program this first year (Summer 2014). The approximate cost of the program per year is $43,700. Eureka has also committed to match funds earned in the community to cover the future costs of the program.

For more information on the program, go to http://www.eurekacommunityinitiative.com/.
