Children and their families were treated to Family Literacy Night Tuesday at Bobby Ray Memorial Elementary. The event was organized by second-grade teacher Lynette Kesey and her fellow staff members. Excited children, parents and siblings all gathered in the school cafeteria to register and start the process of visiting various stations set up throughout the school.
