The guest readers included representatives from the Paragould Rotary Club, Paragould police and fire departments, and school officials. Other readers were from KAIT Meteorology, Junior Auxiliary, AMMC, and PHS band, theater, and football students. Clifford posed for photos, and there was even a rumor that Elvis was in the building.
With such a line-up, I felt honored to be a guest reader, as well. I shared an excerpt from The Legend of Sassafras House. Thanks to the parents and grandparents who braved the adverse weather to allow the children to attend this heart-warming event.
