We visited with the kids from Lincoln elementary to thank them for being so generous to the less fortunate this winter.

We celebrated at Lincoln School with the class who collected the most amounts of coats. The pizza party with Mrs. Sears and her 2nd-grade class gave us the opportunity to thank for the kids for their part in bringing in a total of 354 coats. We appreciate the hard work of the students!
