On Friday, students and teachers across the state were celebrating both Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America Day with special activities, including a reading by State Representative David Rutigliano (R-123) who was honored to participate in a Dr. Seuss trivia contest and administer reading the pledge at Tashua Elementary School. "This is one of my favorite days of the year as a legislator," said Rep. Rutigliano. "I have so much fun interacting with the kids and answering their thoughtful questions. I thank Tashua for inviting me to this inspiring program. The teachers put on a spectacular play that all the kids enjoyed; this is a talented and dedicated group of people."
