“We are hopeful that the gentlemen and ladies that came in today would serve as an inspiration for all of our children, not only to engage them in conversation but to share a good book with them," Greenbrier Elementary School Principal Pat Cuomo said.

The fraternity is holding its annual convention at the DoubleTree hotel in Albemarle County this week. The theme for this year’s convention is Raising Our Children with Equity versus Equality." The convention runs through Saturday, February 1.
