Village Beat: A Crane Thanksgiving

Among tables adorned with pumpkins and leaves, students, parents and teachers at Crane Country Day School celebrated the season with a Thanksgiving feast. The meal, complete with turkey, stuffing, and all the traditional fixings, had special meaning this year as the school community embraced three of its own families who lost their homes in the Tea Fire. Earlier in the day, Crane students, with the help of volunteers from Westmont, spent hours assembling sifters to donate to Tea Fire victims. Teachers Bob Ingersoll, Phil von Phul and Chris Reussner organized the effort.

In all, about sixty sifters were made and donated. more
