Last Saturday's Ducky Derby was once again a huge success. Many thanks to all the folks that came out, the sponsors, vendors, and all the volunteers that make this event possible.
All the proceeds will go to benefit local charities.

Yarrow talked and sang before the students and staff during a morning assembly, inviting a small group of students on stage to show them how the Peaceful Schools Program works and to sing with him. He encouraged students to conduct the Four-Way Test in speech and action.
The test used by Rotarians — who helped developed Peaceful Schools with Yarrow — encourages people to ask if something it true, fair, beneficial to all, and whether it will build goodwill and better friendships before speaking or acting.
