Read Across America

On Thursday, March 2, the Union County Sheriff’s Office took part in the Read Across America program throughout Union County.  Read Across America commemorates Dr Seuss’s birthday each year.  Sheriff Joe Cryan explained“ We send some of our officers out to schools throughout Union County to read a Dr. Seuss book to the kids”. He added “ It’s a great program.  This is the second consecutive year our officers have participated in this program.  It’s a win/win for our officers and the kids involved. Anytime we can get out in the community and interact with the kids in a positive way it’s a good thing, and it provides us an opportunity to promote reading to the kids in a fun way.”  Officers from the Union County Sheriff’s Office read to students in School #9 in Elizabeth, Brunner Elementary School in Scotch Plains, the Hannah Caldwell Elementary School in Union, and the Cedarbrook K-8 School in Plainfield.
