Only 100 cards will be sold and are valid from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. The cards sell for $40 each and offer two entrees for the price of one at nine local restaurants. The maximum discounted from a second meal is $20. "We are excited to offer this program because not only is it of great value to those who purchase the cards, but the money raised will allow us to donate the proceeds back to this community for student scholarships, the food bank, special needs children, the Santa Program, vision assistance and much more," said Lions Club President Mike Kirk. He recognized the contributions from Longboards Restaurant, The Grizzly Grill, Graeagle Restaurant, Graeagle Meadows, Nakoma, Neighbors Bar-B-Que, Log Cabin, the Bontaful Gardens and Chalet View Lodge.

The third event will be on July 23 and will entail interaction with therapy dogs, and the last event will be on July 30 and is another Red Rover program. All the special events are on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. While the kids are reading, parents might want to join in on the fun. The Friends of the Portola Library are having a special book sale to clear inventory and make room for new books. Now through August 28, all hardback books on the Friends of the Library shelves are 50 cents each. Soft backs are 25 cents and children's books are free.
