School Board Chairman Annette Lewis read to students a book about football, one of her favorite subjects.  This event is just the beginning.  'Books and Breakfast' will take place every other Saturday during the fall.  The next event is scheduled for Saturday, September 23rd at 10 a.m.  It is open to students of Hurt Park Elementary.
