Celebrating Dr. Seuss’s Birthday

Published 4:10 pm Thursday, March 29, 2018

While celebrating the 114th birthday of famed children’s author, Dr. Theodore Seuss Geisel, officers from the Farmville Police Department read to pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and first-grade students at Fuqua School. The books were by Dr. Seuss. Deputy Police Chief Bill Hogan started the morning reading with “Horton Lays an Egg” to Susan Johnson’s students. Lieutenant Bobby Ragland read “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish” to Tracy Carilli’s class. The final reading from Sgt. H.A. Hoyle was “Green Eggs and Ham” to pre-kindergarten classes led by Mary Shepherd and Maggie Johnson.

We commend these officers for connecting with area school children, an effort that can help forge a positive, lasting bond.
