This will be the third year we have donated books to Ballard East. We enjoy going down there very much. The students, teachers, and principal are very appreciative. We always get thank you notes from the students. We think this is a wonderful project. With budget cuts in the schools, it’s important to help where we can. And, for many students, these personal dictionaries become prized possessions because they have never had one of their own.
