"Read Across America" is a national celebration sponsored by the National Education Association to promote reading. The event takes place annually around the 2nd of March, the birthday of Dr. Seuss, who would have been 110 this year. The event took place from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and featured 21 reading stations located throughout the galleries - each site positioned near or underneath special museum aircraft.
The 15th annual read-in was the largest event of its type in Ohio and approximately 70 volunteers from Wright-Patterson and the community read aviation-related stories and Dr. Seuss books to nearly 700 second- and third-grade students that attended from area schools. Base volunteers also served as escorts for individual school classes within the museum.
Photos feature students from Mother Brunner Catholic School in Dayton listening to volunteers read about young Orville and Wilbur Wright while sitting next to the Wright 1909 Military Flyer display in the Early Years Gallery of the museum. To the right is the character Dr. Seuss.
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the annual workplace charitable giving campaign for the Department of Defense (DoD) and Federal workforce. Contributions support eligible non-profit organizations that provide health and human welfare benefits. Since its inception in 1961, DoD and Federal employees have contributed more than $7 billion through CFC.
Miami Valley CFC is the local charitable giving campaign in an 11-county region including Champaign, Clark, Clinton, Darke, Fayette, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Shelby and Warren counties in Ohio. The local Federal workforce has contributed more than $88 million through Miami Valley CFC since its inception. Nearly 28,000 Federal government employees work in Miami Valley CFC?s 11-county region. Miami Valley CFC ranked first in Ohio on money raised and 15th nationally in 2012.
Giving back through the annual campaign is the most efficient way for the DoD and Federal workforce to make a difference?together. Improve lives, strengthen communities and encourage change...a solid investment!
The decision to participate is voluntary and the amount of one's gift is up to each individual. There are tens of thousands of reasons to contribute through CFC...each one has a name and a face. Please remember that no contribution is too small and every donation does make a world of difference.
