A great day of support for Finneytown Schools

Posted on: August 15, 2016

Really, how can we adequately say thank you to volunteers from Northminster Presbyterian Church and to our staff for spending Saturday mulching, weeding, painting, cleaning, stuffing student packets and simply showing love and support for Finneytown Schools?

This was the ninth year for Project Connect, and John Zimmerman, one of the organizers from Northminster Presbyterian, says, "The message is that the community is behind our schools -- and that the schools are Finneytown."

Volunteers included 90-year-olds and six-year-olds, retired doctors and attorneys, immigrants from Bhutan, Finneytown principals, teachers, kindergartners and high school students, parents and school employees, college students, and the friends and family members all of them brought along.

Thank you all for polishing up our schools, saving us money and -- most of all -- raising our spirits as we start a new school year!
