First Time: Two years ago seven members of the Sylvan Grove 6th Grade Class, under the direction of their teacher, Pam Hlad, participated and
won a contest at Village Lines on Kansas Day for the best rendering of the state song, “Home on the Range.” The prize was for a seat on a future
motor coach tour. We are happy to announce a benefactor has made it possible to place all those students and their teacher on this tour. If room
there will be 16, (new students from Lucas-Luray consolidation.) We will accept a few small donations for the extra in that case.
Please Be a Mentor: We are counting on you, our dedicated and wonderful
friends, to sit with, talk with, and in general, take these young people under wing so they may have a fun, educational day!
Perhaps you would be a seat mate?
Please Return by August 24
