The Monett Lions have presented a $1,200 check to the Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) program at Monett Elementary School.

Due to a cut in federal funding this year, the school program providing books to each student reduced its total to one each.

"The money, raised through last year's apple butter sales by the Monett Lions Club, will provide an additional book per student," said Lions Club President Robbie Davis.

The donation fits under the Lions International goal for the year of improving literacy.
