A Solon Salute to Silvan, Chloe, Chase, Jordan, Kayla, and Jalen! Thank you, again, for stepping up and helping the folks at The Food Pantry yesterday.  I heard one of you say how good it felt to volunteer, and, honestly, that made my heart light and sooo happy!  : )  Making a positive difference is something each of you do every day, I'm sure.  Yesterday, though, you did so for people in need you did not know. -Stephanie DiLena
