Families were able to visit over a dozen downtown locations and listen to stories read aloud by “celebrity” readers as well as crafts based on classic children’s books. In addition to businesses participating in the event, this year’s Community Reading Night also featured the “Chrysler Cars 4 Classrooms” fundraiser. During the fundraiser, hosted by Milnes Chrysler at the Lamb Steele Building parking lot, parents and friends of the school were able to earn a $10 contribution, up to $2,000, for Weston and Borland Elementary students by test driving new vehicles.
