Three cheers to the students at Stafford Technical School! Headed by energetic staffer Peg Bolgioni, a large contingent of Stafford students did a wonderful community service project on Oct. 23 by helping a great many Rutland senior citizens clean their lawns of leaves.
They were a happy group of teens who did a great job, raking and bagging the leaves, and then taking them away. The Stafford group then presented each of us a delicious homemade apple pie, compliments of the Stafford culinary department, along with two very handy coffee mugs.
It was such a blessing to have this assistance. The high energy, willingness and big smiles of the hard-working students made the experience even more gratifying.
Hats off to the Stafford Tech students!
