Wednesday, we had a treat, Patricia King brought the 4th grade from Malakoff Elementary School over and presented us a Thanksgiving program. These kids are super. Robert the Car- penter and his crew were working on something that they couldn't quit on in the new room and they were very noisy, even though much to their credit they were as quiet as it was possible for them to be. Anyway these kids had to completely change their way of doing their program so that we could hear. They did and they did a mighty fine job. We sure do thank Patricia and the boys and girls and the ones who came and helped. It was a good program. Nanny Drake is special to many people in Malakoff, but especially so to the young people.
