Thankfully, the student's fundraiser was successful.Expired Image Removed
A group of 5th grade students from Waggoner Road Middle School in Reynoldsburg, OH have decided to help repair the drummer boy on the Ohio State Monument on Missionary Ridge. These students are in the process of raising $5000 to help the Friends and the Park return the drummer boy's hand and drumstick. Their teacher, Mr. Hinkle, is leading this great civics study. What great students! Details on how you can help the students coming soon!
There are children and there are children. Some go wild and some don't. I didn't dare do anything like that, but that was my parents. There were times I wanted to mess up something or another, but Ma and Pa would not like that. (Yes. they were Ma and Pa.)I suppose they take the plaques for the metal - that's what they were doing at the local cemetery. I always feel bad about these things. The quality of the piece is forever diminished, even if repaired. There's no reasoning behind it - just people greedy or too stupid to think of something better to do.
