Celebrities read to children at ICCS

Immaculate Conception Catholic School spent last Tuesday morning listening to local celebrities read their favorite children’s stories as part of National Young Readers Day.

This special day is celebrated the second Tuesday in November and was created by Pizza Hut and the Center of the Book in the Library of Congress in 1989 as a means to celebrate literacy.

This year’s celebrity readers at Immaculate Conception included Master Sargent Dwight Damshroder from the Red Horse Unit, newly elected Coroner Dr. Daniel Cadigan, children’s librarian Rosemary Rose, Ottawa County Probate and Juvenile Court Judge Kathleen Giesler and Port Clinton Mayor Vince Leone. The day was organized by reading teacher Rachell Paeth.
