Fire Fighters Bring Books, Safety, and Fun

On Thursday, March 2, Maryland Family Network (MFN) and the Anne Arundel Professional Firefighters Association presented children at the Annapolis Family Support Center with books for their home libraries. The event kicked off with a photoshoot for the children on an antique firetruck followed by a brief safety presentation and a few stories read to the children by one of the retired firefighters. The day ended with parents and children selecting books to take home and keep. This is the 8th year in a row that the firefighters have collected new and gently used books for the children at the Center. The event is always held in March to coincide with Dr. Seuss' birthday and Read Across America Day.
