PARMA, Ohio -- Parma Mayor Tim DeGeeter will celebrate his birthday on Thursday … by reading bedtime stories to 30 or so Parma-area kids in jammies.

The program, at the Parma-Snow branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library, will begin at 7 p.m. Mayor DeGeeter and Parma City School District Superintendent Jeff Graham will read bedtime stories and all will be invited to share the Mayor’s birthday cake.

“Everybody loves a bedtime story,” the Mayor said. “What better way to spend my birthday than with my kids … and 30 or so of their little friends?”

Parma-Snow branch manager Stacey Boycik reminds parents that, if kids are to eat cake, a release form should be filled out any time before the event. A list of ingredients in the cake, to be provided by Gail’s Bakery, will be available at the event.

Parents can sign up kids for the event at the Parma-Snow Branch tab on the website of the Cuyahoga County Public Library; kids are, of course, encouraged to wear pajamas.
