Help is appreciated

To the editor:

On behalf of the preschool classes at Riverside Early Learning Center, I want to thank the parents and community businesses that donated pumpkins to our preschool students. When our budget proved that a field trip to Community Orchard just wasn’t in the cards this year, we reached out to the parents and community to help us. Roughly 175 pumpkins were donated. On Oct. 31, all preschool students were able to choose a pumpkin from our Riverside “pumpkin patch” to take home. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of those who helped put a smile on the children’s faces.
