I made the newspaper!

Or...my left hand did, at least.  ;)

My disembodied hand is held by that of my DS, the little dude in the foreground.  I can't wait to volunteer for this fundraiser again, next year.

FERRYSBURG — Walking on sunshine on a warm November day in West Michigan is always a plus — and making a little money at the same time is gold.


About 200 students, staff and parents from Walden Green Montessori School walked almost 5 miles Monday from school and back to raise money to help cover the school's education materials, field trips and expansion of the kindergarten-through-eighth-grade school.

Students earned pledges to walk almost two hours from the school on Roosevelt Road to West Spring Lake Road, up Ridge Road, and back to the school. After the walk, students received water bottles and snacked on donuts.

The Walden Green Foundation, a parent organization, has raised $11,000 already this year.

"We're hoping we've reached $15,000 with the walk," said Dr. Kathleen Fox, a Walden Green Foundation parent.

"A hundred percent goes right back into school," she said.

Last year, the foundation purchased a field trip school bus and microscopes for classrooms at Walden Green, a free public charter school.
