Hats Headed to Kyrgyzstan!

Dear Members of the Guilford Valley Grange,

The students in the Penquis Valley Life Skills Program would like to thank you for contributing to their project to collect winter hats and caps for the children in Kyrgyzstan. We managed to reach our goal of 200 caps thanks to your help. This was a meaningful project for the students and we thank you for your generosity.
