Vol. LIX, No. 2 576 EX/C Smalltown Papers 217 W. Cota Street Shelton WA 98584 " 'The time has come,' the walrus said, 'to talk of many things . ." " Thursday, January 12, 2017 PRESS Saint Paul, Virginia 50 cents by Jerry Couch On the moming of April 6th, students of the Gifted & Talented National Jufiior Honor Society of .St. Paul Elementary School will board a chartered bus in St. Paul and depart for a three-day history.adventure - a tour of Washington, DC. This week there will be two fundraising events in support of the students' tour. The first event is a buffet fundraiser at Pizza Plus in St. Paul on Thursday, January 12th from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Complete details of this event are featured on page 3 of this issue. The second event is an indoor yard sale at rSt. Paul Elementary School. The sale will take place Saturday, January 14th from 9:00 a.m. until !:00 p.m. It is a follow-up to last Sunday's sale which netted $575.35. The cost of the trip per student is $532.00. The cost for each adult facilitator/chaperone is $612.00. It is very important that NO student be denied this wonderful edu- cational opportunity because of ability to pay. When I was their age, a trip like this one would have been impos- sible - we might as well have wished for a trip to the moon. That's why I am putting my money where my mouth is by supporting the trip and I hope you will con- sider doing so as well.
