MONROE - Costumes were more than welcome for Monday's Read Across America volunteer event at Parkside Elementary. Cory Hirsbrunner, superintendent to the Monroe School District, was among the many volunteers who read stories to the students who were clad in pajamas and fun costumes in honor of the late Dr. Seuss's birthday, which was on March 2. High school students, community members and a police officer joined in reading for the children.
