Uncle Slam's Reading Program

Do you love baseball and reading?

Take part in Uncle Slam’s Reading Program! All you have to do is read 4 books and record the titles on the back of your bookmark.  Once you have read 4 books, you can take the bookmark with you to a Potomac Nationals Game and you will receive 2 free tickets.  Fairhill has selected the June 9th game.  Please see this flyer for more details. Have fun reading and we hope to see you at the ballpark!
