The Goshen Weekly, November 25 , 2019
This morning, the children helped prepare food donations for delivery to the Chester County Food Bank. We packed up canned goods, boxes of pasta and rice, and jars of sauce. After all that hard word, we sat down for our annual Friendship Feast and enjoyed the story of the first Thanksgiving, presented (with props and costumes!) by our teachers. Tomorrow, Froggies, Ladybugs and Bumblebees will get a turn! Thanks to the entire community for your support of our November service project. Check Facebook tomorrow for a complete album from both days.
A very  Happy Thanksgiving to all!
