Some very well known individuals (or perhaps official representatives thereof), visited Lincoln Elementary Monday morning with bags of presents and volumes of wisdom for the young patriots to endear and to hear.
Members of the Wellington Middle School Leadership Team along with their sponsors, Kristin White and Terri Driskell, went shopping Saturday morning to spend money earned for "2" Angel Tree Kids (an 11 yr old girl and a 12 yr old boy), for Christmas.
