Operation Prom Dress 2014
There is still time to participate in this year’s Operation Prom-Dress! Don’t let a tough economy discourage students from attending Prom.
Dig through those closets for new or gently used dresses and accessories and donate them to any of the following libraries or community centers.
Donations are being accepted until March 7, 2014.
For Students needing a dress, join us March 9th from 9am - 1 pm at the Seven Trees Community Center! There will be refreshments and raffle prizzes! Please remember to bring a valid student ID. For more information, see our flyer here.
Everyone is invited to celebrate the 110th birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss, at Cambrian Branch Library on Monday, March 3, 2014, from 4:00 to 5:00 PM.
Interesting tidbits about Dr. Seuss (whose birthday is actually on March 2):
"If you want to pronounce the name the way his family did, say Zoice, not Soose. Seuss is a Bavarian name, and was his mother’s maiden name: Henrietta Seuss’s parents emigrated from Bavaria (part of modern-day Germany) in the nineteenth century."
"As a magazine cartoonist, he began signing his work under the mock-scholarly title of "Dr. Theophrastus Seuss" in 1927. He shortened that to "Dr. Seuss" in 1928. In acquiring his professional pseudonym, he also gained a new pronunciation. Most Americans pronounce the name Soose, and not Zoice. And that’s how Ted Geisel became Dr. Seuss."

The Seussical celebration at Cambrian Branch on March 3 includes a craft activity and, of course, birthday cake for everyone (while supplies last).
We hope that you can come and join us for this birthday party!
