To the editor:
On behalf of the Houghton Elementary Parent Teacher Organization Ice Cream Social Committee we would like to send a huge thank you to Portage Health for donating all of the ice cream, toppings and service for more than 1,100 sundaes for this year's event.
Portage's generosity goes above and beyond the requested support, and truly demonstrates the cooperative relationship existing between our local businesses and schools.
We would also like to thank Matt's Auto Glass for their donation, in addition to all of the parent and faculty volunteers.
The PTO funds library books, playground equipment, teacher appreciation events and more. Thank you to all who helped to make this event a success. We'll see you next year for this popular, early school year event.
Mary Fraley and Kim Salmi
