City Officials and Staff spent the evening reading with the children at New Republic Elementary School on March 1, 2018. There was even a special appearance from Curious George! The annual Read Across America event reminds children about the importance of reading and using your imagination. This national program coincides with the birthday of Dr. Seuss, the children's book author that has brought smiles and laughter to children (and adults) for decades.

Pictured with children from New Republic Elementary School is (left to right, back to front): Assistant Police Chief Manny Martinez, Curious George, Teresa Corpuz, City Manager Ray Corpuz, Del Rey Oaks Mayor Jerry Edelen, Salinas Fire Engineer Mike Mizer, Salinas Firefighter Thomas Melia, Salinas Fire Captain Keith Emery, Salinas Fire Captain Shane VanderVeen, and Salinas Police Department School Resource Officer Lino Sanchez.
