                DINE-IN

                  Today is the 2nd annual Dine In Day across the world.  This day has been identified as "DINE IN" to encourage families of all types to eat together more often than they do.  100 years ago, eating together as a family was a part of everyday life.  Today, families often find themselves eating out as much as 3 days a week.  Families have very busy life styles and a lot of activities.  I baked this pumpkin bread for us to eat for breakfast.  Let's DINE IN!


                  The morning news crew hopes many of you in our McGee community get to Dine In with your family this week.  Show your support by wearing your Dine In sticker today!

                   

                  CONGRATULATIONS!

                    Congratulations to Audrey Feldman on receiving the prestigious Daughters of the American Revolution Award!
