Waxahachie resident Regina Engelhardt stopped by The Daily Light to drop off her contribution of books, which is part of Operation First Day of School. The Waxahachie Rotary Club is sponsoring this facet of the program, which asks for donations of new or gently used books. You can drop your book donations by KBEC 1390 at 711 Ferris Avenue or The Daily Light at 200 W. Marvin Avenue. You can also contact co-chair Mickie Hill at 972-935-2548 if you have questions or would like books picked up. Her email is emhill@ectisp.net. The deadline to make your book drop-off is Aug. 6, and Operation First Day of School will take place from 9 a.m.-noon and 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14, at Clift Elementary School.
