Xavier University College of Social Sciences, Health and Education presents Education Day on May 26 at 11:05am. Not only will kids enjoy a day at the ballpark, but they will also experience an education fair. The Freedom will take on the Southern Illinois Miners. This will also be the third season in which Xavier sponsors its X-Treme Reading Club.
This program encourages students in grades K through 8 to read in a new and inventive way. All they do is read and get rewarded with FREE tickets to 2010 Wednesday night Florence Freedom home games. Students must read four books for each free voucher. Vouchers are good only for eligible Freedom Wednesday games (excludes Wednesday, May 26). An e-mail will be sent several days ahead of the Wednesday game and the voucher will be attached. Parents will print off the voucher they receive after registering on the web site and bring it to the check in at the Champion Window Field third base gate. One voucher is good for a free ticket for the participant and one guest (8th grade or younger). Other friends and adult family members accompanying the student may buy specially priced tickets. Families of multiple children need only to register one address and can print multiple copies. Please visit www.florencefreedom.com for more information.
