A Solon Salute to all those who made the Soccer-Jersey-Thank You to Montpellier, France possible. Sue Monmaney and Adam Blair provided heroic level support on audio/visual needs. Jackson Markow pitched in too. Thank you to Noel Riby-Williams for serving as the student speaker, Mike Martin in representing Montpelier Public Schools, Tom A. and John B. for the setup, Brian G. for letting us use the gym during a class, and Matt Link for organizing the participating students. Thanks also to Jamie and Sue at City Hall for their collaboration and all of the participating students. The story was picked up by the Associated Press again, so the news traveled around the globe.
