QSL Community Projects

Reading Is Fundamental (RIF)

Reading Is Fundamental (RIF)

QSL League members distribute books to a designated summer school site in Quincy for K – 5th Grade students. Members must participate in two distributions – one at the beginning and one at the end of the 20 day summer school program, each lasting for 3 hours in the morning. League members serve on the planning committee for both distributions. This committee decides the book to be read aloud and the presentation activity. Committee members are also responsible for picking up and dropping off
books for one of the distributions. The chairman coordinates distribution dates and times with QPS, Julie Stratman, summer school coordinators, and the QSL RIF committee members.
The Monotones

The Monotones

Monotones is a group of ladies who bring joy to residents of area assisted living homes and nursing homes through song and dance. This unique project runs each fall, with performances in the evenings from mid-September through mid-October. Our entertaining show is a 26 minute, "show-choir" styled show: featuring a collaboration of medleys that touch on four significant decades of music that helped shape and evolve the music industry. The show ends in a grand finish, with a beautiful arrangement of three Patriotic favorites. After each performance, we share cookies and visit with the residents. The most rewarding part of this project is not only visiting with them, but watching them enjoy the music; singing and clapping along to the music is our greatest reward. They are very gracious in communicating how much they enjoy our visits and look forward to our return year after year. If you would like to learn more about Monotones, please contact the current project chair.
