The Pella Reads initiative centered around the book “Three Cups of Tea” continues next Thursday. Jerene Mortenson, mother of Greg Mortensen who penned “Three Cups of Tea” will be speaking at the Community Center to help bring awareness to her “Pennies For Peace” program. The program helps bring educational oppurtunities to children in countries where education is not typically a national priority. To date, Pennies For Peace has contributed to the construction of more than 100 schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan serving more than 28,000 students.
