Riggins News: Fund-raiser on tap for March 17

My quotes for the week are from one of my favorite children’s authors, Dr. Seuss…difficult to choose just one…so, I chose two: “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” from Dr. Seuss, Happy Birthday to You! “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” from Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut! Hope you all celebrated Dr. Seuss’ Birthday Saturday, March 2, in great Dr. Seuss style with a Dr. Seuss book in your hand…perhaps reading to a child…I sure did!
