I'm not sure why it took me by surprise, but it did. It happened almost as soon as Thanksgiving dinner was cleaned up. The very next evening … yes, you guessed it. Homes covered in Christmas lights. Santas and reindeer decorating lawns. Christmas music on the radio non-...

Our 5th and 6th graders had a blast last night at Club 56. We recycled a bunch of old crayons into these fun Lego-shaped crayons. We still need to package them and include some person cards, but when done, they will be given to children in a local hospital. Great job, kids! Many thanks to...
