I am a teacher at W.H. Rhodes Elementary who recently enlisyted help from the community business owners for help with our annual Fall Festical. I wanted to thank each and every one of them who helped out with our class booth this year.

Our annual Fall Festival was held on Friday, October 5. We had a wonderful turnout with students, parents, and some of our community business owners/employees. All who were in attendance seemed to enjoy themselves.

Our class booth raised about $200. This will go for class projects, science projects, educational games, classroom art projects, and even help assist some studentsí educational field trip experiences.

I truly appreciate all donations that you and/or your businesses were able to donate to help make our Fall Festival booth a wonderful success. Thank you to the following businesses:

The Santa Rosa Press Gazette
J & D Cleaners
Ronnyís Car Wash
Oops Alley
CiCiís Pizza
American Lube
The Ridge Theater in Pace
Surprizes Inside
Little Angels
JJís Hair Den
Dennielís Monograming
My Nails II
Hallís Hardware
Sweet Frogs

Ladies, childrenís and menís gift baskets were given away due to the community generosity. Thanks again for all that you did to help out our class. I hope that I will be able to enlist your help again in next yearís Fall Festival.
