Bits and Pieces
Thank you so much to everyone who donated and helped to fundraise. Thank you also to everyone who came out to cheer the kids on. We REALLY appreciate all your support. :-)

Thank you to those who donated books from our wish list last month. We LOVE getting new books for our library.
