THANKSGIVING IS HERE; a time for us all to say thank you. To all who saved us from the flood; to all who helped everyone; to all who came and are still coming to help; to all the volunteers from Lyons and everywhere; to all the students who gave to our school’s programs; to all for your support; for the hot meals after the flood, and our Thanksgiving dinner. It is truly overwhelming how helpful and caring folks are!
