Dr. Seuss' Birthday - Read on Tuesday, March 2.
 
Theodor Seuss Geisel's birthday is March 2, 1904.   The Carrollton Kiwanis Club will visit elementary schools and present books to selected children.   We are adjusting "the read" this year for social distancing and Covid-19.  Many members of the Kiwanis Club will be delivering books to the schools, but not reading in small groups, as has been the custom.  Volunteers should pick up books from Sit'n Sleep in Carrollton.  Contact Paul McDaniel if you have any questions.

Note from Stuart:
 
 
Keep our shut-ins in your thoughts and prayers.
