Seuss-tastical Celebration a Success!
Mayor Steve Martin read to a packed house on Monday, March 2 at the Paso Robles Library during the day-long Read Across America celebration. Martin began with a spirited rendition of Dr. Seuss's book "Oh, The Places You'll Go." After sharing the story, the Mayor took time to answer a few questions from the children. Inquiries ranged from "Have you met the President?" to "Why do you want to be the Mayor?" to which Martin responded "Because I want to make a difference in the place where I live."
Close to 150 adults and children took part in the celebration honoring one of our most beloved children's authors. Martin was joined by other community leaders including City of Paso Robles Fire Chief Ken Johnson, Director of Library and Recreation Services Julie Dahlen, Marilu Gomez, school Readiness Coordinator for Georgia Brown Elementary School, and of course the Cat in the Hat.
