What a great day to be part of the Grace family!  We had wonderful weather for the walkathon, collected lots of items for local food pantries, and had fun this afternoon.  We also raised a lot of money for the school.  At the beginning of the week we were at $16,000, but by this afternoon we had made our goal of $25,000!  A huge thank you to our event coordinators: Jennifer Brayton, Tina Hynes, and Esther Armstrong, and everyone else who helped coordinate in advance of today, to all those who walked, and everyone who helped behind the scene.  It takes a lot of work to make an event like this run so smoothly.  Thank you to all of you!  Enjoy the weekend.
