Special Gifts for Meals on Wheels
Ms. Amanda Ebenal and her second graders at Sandy Hook Elementary School are preparing special gifts for SAAA's Meals on Wheels recipients in the Strasburg area. They recently planted "Tickle Me" seeds. Now they are tenderly watering and watching them grow. The leaves of "Tickle Me" plants close when touched so they'll be fun for both the children and their recipients. Thank you Ms. Ebenal and her Second Grade Class for a wonderful project. Here are some pictures from planting and watering.
