Charlotte, in her parting message, spun the numbers 2,225,383 into her web, and took a final bow in front of a packed Burroughs gym for the 2013 Read-a-thon closing ceremony. Burroughs readers exceeded their goal of 2 million minutes and chanted for Mr. Cadotte to “kiss the pig” and uphold his end of the bargain.
 
After much hesitation and kissing a few stuffed animals, Mr. Cadotte, dressed up as Governor of the Burroughs County Fair, finally puckered up and kissed a live version of Wilbur to the cheers of hundreds of Burroughs students.
 

Congratulations to all the families for their great reading and fundraising, which ultimately brought in nearly $98,000 for Burroughs!
