Commissioners Recognize the Community Spirit of Green Trees Learning Center Students
"We need to check the labels before we take the food," commented Hopper. As she checked the date on a can, she added, "It wouldn't be nice to give bad food." Her awareness of expiration dates and her initiative to monitor closely was admirable.
A large amount of dry goods and canned food was donated to the Ecumenical Food Pantry this month thanks to the thoughtfulness of Hopper, her 7-year-old friend Lyla Sustak, and other students.
The Pike County Commissioners recently presented Certificates of Recognition to this bright group of young people, and said thank you for their excellent work and community spirit during a visit to Green Trees Early Learning Center, in Milford.
