A Solon Salute to Ms. Heather McLane, Club Action and the Interact Club for their work in leading the shoebox drive. They write, "We are so grateful to the MHS community for your donations to the shoebox drive. We were hoping to get two shoeboxes full of items and instead ended up collecting approximately 15 shoeboxes holding around 140 items. We were so touched to see the thoughtful, quality gifts that were donated. Your contributions have already warmed our hearts and will no doubt do the same for the elderly recipients. Thank you to everyone who donated items and to all of the members of Club Action and the Interact Club for helping with the drive. Special thanks to Matt Koucky, Brynn Bushey, and Izzy Maine-Torres for your contributions. (The winning TA was Wall/Solon with Loveless in second place.)


A Solon Salute to Ruby Jennings for her gift wrapping talents! (From Mr. Laidlaw).
