Clay Aiken – “You’re Off To Great Places!”

 

On Saturday, Clay Aiken was out and about in District 2, meeting and greeting with the people of the area.

Fortunately, Clay  posted a few pictures online.  I hope he and his team will post lots of pictures throughout this election.

It looks like Clay had the opportunity to meet many people.

I am sure he took the time to listen to the crowd

and I bet he had lots to share with the people too!

On this day in 1904, Theodor Geisel, better known to the world as Dr. Seuss, the author and illustrator of such beloved children’s books as “The Cat in the Hat” and “Green Eggs and Ham,” was born in Springfield, Massachusetts.  Geisel, who used his middle name(which was also his mother’s maiden name) as his pen name, wrote 48 books, including some for adults.  He has sold well over 200 million copies of his books and they have been translated into multiple languages.

The National Education Association annually sponsors Read Across America. Now in its seventeenth year, the program focuses on motivating children to read, in addition to helping them master basic skills.

The nationwide reading celebration takes place each year on or near March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, community centers, and more participate by bringing together kids and books.

In 2004, Clay Aiken participated in Read Across America.  He visited a elementary school, donned a red and white Dr. Seuss hat and read to a lucky classroom of students.

Congratulations to the National Education Association for sponsoring such an important day and a big thank you to all the celebrities like Clay Aiken, who support the importance of reading for all.

One of my favorite quotes from Dr. Seuss is dedicated to Clay Aiken:

“You’re off to Great Places!

Today is your day!

Your mountain is waiting,

So… get on your way!”

~Dr. Seuss ~

From: Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

  1. Wonderful article! Clay supports so many things that are essential for EVERYONE to lead a quality life. He is a teacher at heart, but his major talent is being able to fnd and accept something to love in each person who crosses his path. I hope he is able to grace Congress with his positive attitude, viewpoints, and sheer wisdom.

  2. Thanks for the pics of Clay from yesterday Musicfan. He sure is keeping busy.

    I do remember reading about Clay reading for the kids,and wearing the "hat". He's just always been passionate about helping kids.

  3. Thanks again Music an for all you do to keep us up to date on Clay's new adventure. The pictures keep him close to us and I'm sure we're part of the reason for him posting so many, at least I hope so. He is in all our hearts and he knows it. He's a whirling dervish and it's hard, no impossible, to keep up to him, Go go go go!
