Basket effort successful
Many Jamestown families had a nice Thanksgiving this year thanks to many groups and organizations. A very big thank you goes out to the Jamestown Rotary Club, who has been donating turkey baskets for the past 31 years. Also, thank you to Maggie Grenier and the Salvation Army, the Cub Scouts, the Jamestown School bus drivers and Paula`s 6th grade class at Our Lady of Mercy in East Greenwich.
A special thank you to the kindergarten children at the Melrose School who earned money doing odd jobs at home. They brought their earnings to school where they and their teachers made out shopping lists, walked to McQuade's Market and purchased items to be added to turkey baskets. What a great lesson in caring and sharing. Thank you also to the ladies of St. Mark outreach who worked behind the scenes to make sure everything ran smoothly.
