Congratulations and thank you to the Ben Franklin Middle School community for today donating 130 turkeys for local needy families. This is the unofficial total, and I'm told it may be just one turkey shy of the previous record. (Can anyone confirm this?)
As a reader posted here earlier this evening: "Great job BF'ers. Your community is proud of you. There will be lots of appreciative and well-fed families on Thanksgiving."
Wishing a warm and happy Thanksgiving to all.
