From Mrs. Cottingham:
Amazingly, I have not had to ask for plastic spoon donations all year because of the generous donations I received last year! However, I am down to my last dozen or so. If you have a supply of plastic spoons (I still have lots of forks), I would gratefully accept donations. Just drop them off at the office please. Thank you!
