Kudos to the Leos of Glenwood Middle School who held a recent book drive and were delighted with the large lot of children’s and young adult selections donated by community members.

A night with chilly temperatures did little to deter the West Friendship Elementary students, staff and family members who enjoyed Skate Night at the Wheels Skating Center on Jan. 14. The PTA-sponsored family night is always a big hit with the kids. The spirit days at West Friendship Elementary continue with fun events like sports jersey shirt day on Feb. 2.

My pal Kate, who is an avid bird watcher, would have laughed to see a flock of geese observed flying north on the one oddly tropical day of weather we had in January. The bird watcher then observed on the very next day, when temperatures had plummeted, another flock flying south.
