Queen Azalea to Read to Children at SMHDC

Norfolk’s 56th International Azalea Festival — a salute to NATO — isn’t until April, but the festival’s Queen Azalea happens to be in town this week. And one of her first stops is going to be St. Mary’s Home for Disabled Children. 

Magdalena Dvorakova of the Czech Republic will tour St. Mary’s Home at 10 a.m. Thursday and read to some of the children who live here. 
Dvorakova is a captain in the Czech Republic’s army and the Azalea Festival is recognizing her country as “Most Honored Nation.”
