Thanks for Support of Dr. Seuss Celebration

The Cat in the Hat gave it two paws up! It was a great time for everyone.

Thanks for Support of Dr. Seuss Celebration


On behalf of the Dr. Seuss Committee of Mavs In Action, thank you to everyone who helped with the Dr. Seuss Birthday Celebration, Friday, February 16. Kindergarteners from across our area enjoyed hearing stories and doing craft projects that tied to the stories. We even had a visit from the Cat in the Hat! A special shout out to the Maverick Football team for being our welcome greeters. So many wonderful volunteers from the MSU, Mankato College of Education joined in to make it a great day. Even the Maverick Baseball Team helped clean up at the end. Thanks to all the volunteers and teachers who made the day a success for our young learners.

We would especially like to thank Gustavus Adolphus College Dining Services and Campus Kitchen at Minnesota State University, Mankato for baking and packaging the cookies for the children.  

If you enjoyed reading to children and would like to continue to volunteer, consider joining Reading Buddies. This program meets weekly to visit the Children's House and read to children. For more information, contact Zoe in the Community Engagement Office. We will also look for committee members to plan next year's Dr. Seuss Celebration. Contact Karen, Sam, or Zoe in the Community Engagement Office, 507-389-5789.
