Lisbon – Throughout the halls of Lisbon Community School on Friday, March 2 pajama and costume clad students, parents, staff and community members celebrated the National Read Across America Program with a Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration. Guest readers Kymberlee Piela, Muriel Michaud, Kelly Austin, Sue Ramsay, Angela Shambarger, Jim Millhime, Lisa Caron and Ron Hood provided readings to children and their parents from the most popular collection of Dr. Seuss books. “Thanks to the combined efforts of our volunteers and the assistance of Carlene Iverson, Ryan Patrie, Audrey Harlow, Katy Dodge, Victoria Worden, Annette Clark, Heidi Coulombe, Jim Damsgaard, LCS Custodial and Kitchen staff and a number of Interact students and junior volunteers, the evening was a huge success,” shares Lisbon’s Community Resource Coordinator, Monica Millhime. “Cake and ice cream were served along with a number of door prizes. Four tickets to the UNE Players production of Seussical the Musical scheduled for April 13, 14 and 15 at the City Theater was the biggest lucky draw of the night. “We anticipated 75 to 100 guests. Thanks to the nice weather, folks who are fans of Dr. Seuss, and having no other district event, we had a record attendance of 230 people,” according to Millhime. A special thanks to Lisbon Community Partners Food City, Friendly’s Ice Cream, Target, LCS PTO, the National Education Association and the UNE Players. “According to the survey results from attendees the night was enjoyed by families who are already looking forward to next year’s event.” FMI on other events and programs in Lisbon Schools call 754.0021 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
