This is really great but nothing comes without a price. This is so good; I hope the Messenger will find out how FD citizens can go about financially donating to this very worthy cause and print it ASAP. I'll be watching for it!

I missed the assembly yesterday, but I was present at the assembly when the kids were nominated and they were positively glowing!!! They were having a blast exhibiting some of their talents. And believe me these kids have some skills! It was awesome! I saw no kids sneering or jeering. They were genuinely excited for these wonderful kids. Kudos Sr High!!! :)

I admit my first thought was what horrible set up has been made here? Thats sad. I know it and i try to think of the positives first. This restores some faith in the future generations. Enjoy your prom.
