This Friday, March 2nd is Read Across America Day and schools all over the Jersey Shore are celebrating.

My wife Diane and I are thrilled to have been asked to read once again this year at the Lehman Center, part of the Ladacin Network. We are really looking forward to seeing everyone there once again this year.

We had such a great time last year meeting everyone, and seeing long time friends as well. And it's always great seeing the incredible work that goes on at the Ladacin Network each and every day.

So, we hope that everyone at the Jersey Shore has a great Read Across America Day and week, and if you want to learn more about the Ladacin Network and all that they offer and do, please visit the Ladacin Network website.
