3rd Grade Bake Sale

Last week both 3rd grades had a terrific bake sale at the Vergennnes Union Elementary School. We made $198. A week later, the 3rd grades walked to Shaws from VUES. We used the money from the bake sale to buy different food products.  When we were done we went to the John Graham Shelter and donated the food. The people at the shelter were really nice and happy because we brought food. Zeb thought, “ It was fun.” Ryley thought, “ Donating food to The John Graham Shelter was a good idea.” Alex thought, “ It was tiring walking over, but fun.”
