25 years of service to Overton Elem.
For over 25 years, Mary Sue Leonard has faithfully volunteered with students at Overton Elementary School. She has devoted four to five hours a week over the past 25 school years working with children in reading or math. Conservatively, she has logged well over 4,000 volunteer hours at Overton. For Mary Sue, helping children has been a way of life!
Recently, Mary Sue was recognized by the Kiwanis for her years of faithful service to the children of this community. In her honor, the Kiwanis donated $500 to the organization of her choice, and guess who Mary Sue picked? She selected Overton Elementary, and Mary Sue blessed us yet again with a $500 check which will go directly toward improving technology at Overton!
Overton PTA and staff could not have been more thrilled than to be designated by Mary Sue as her organization of choice. We are so thankful to Mary Sue for her 25-plus years of faithful service to our school and to the children which it serves! It is true that you can make a difference in the life of a child. All it takes is one hour a week, a heart for children, and the desire to make our schools a better place by giving of our time and energy!
I hope others will be inspired by the example of Mary Sue Leonard and choose to volunteer in our schools! Together, we can make a difference! Our schools and our community depend on it!

Feeding the needy
I want to give thanks to Pub 1504 on Jake Alexander Avenue for feeding the needy on Thanksgiving Day.
Jamey and Margaret Caliell, the owners, gave individual hospitality and the great meal was deliciously cooked.
I encourage you to go by and thank them. May God richly bless them.
