It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We had some fun here on Thursday preparing for our Morris Area 3rd Graders to string popcorn and cranberries for our tree! Thank you Joan Boleman, Karen De Vita, Gail Hockert, and Rob Sauers for helping us!

The Baby Grand Piano is HERE!!

Thanks to all the wonderful people that donated on Give to the Max day on November 12th we were able to raise enough money to have this amazing gift delivered to us on November 17th by Manny’s Piano Moving service. Here are a few sneak peak photographs from the delivery day.



and of course Karen and Kate had to play a round of Heart and Soul to test her out! Just image how wonderful it will be to have live music playing at our various receptions!
