Read Across America Day
Monday, March 3, was Read Across America Day, and I actually had someplace to go and something to do. Usually when things like that happen, I find out after the fact and wonder why I was home alone. This time I was invited by a Future Business Leaders of America group to speak to the third graders at an elementary school. This particular high school FBLA has sort of adopted a grade school in their city and do things with the younger kids 3 or 4 times a year. Their president was extremely gracious, competent, well-mannered, etc. etc. The event they planned was bigger than I expected. I was impressed and had a good time.
Now I'm worried about whether or not I'll be invited somewhere for next year's Read Across America Day--which will be March 2, 2004.
