***This is a message from a member of Friends of Students for 60,000*** dear friends, at last night's meeting, it was disclosed that the northport little league has donated equipment for nicaragua. the stuff is being stored at the high school awaiting shipment. also, millie willen reported that a local little league team wants to pair with a team in nicaragua, perhaps exchanging photos and letters. a rhode island school also donated equipment and gave $1,100 for water. two fund-raising ideas were presented. the first would involve little league parents and players in a baseball benefit that might be held this fall. a major league player might be the draw, and interaction on a ballfield or a brunch are possibilities. joann moran, millie and shari kornblatt are committee members. the other suggestion came from shari, and would be a get-together for alumni of students for 60,000. the event would be a chance to renew friendships, catch up on each other's post-high school stories, and inform everyone of what friends is up to and how people can participate. shari will check with her buddies to see what kind of event would bring the biggest crowd. the report by mike cipoletti and others on the comedor escolar (school dining room) project was discussed. the breakfast program is currently only 30 percent self-sustaining, so boosting participation is the main concern. instead of working the land to raise crops, some schools are renting land and using the proceeds to help funding. another problem is that utensils and other items are being pilfered from some schools. the rooms need to be secured, and david lagermann offered to make recommendations. another positive step could be to have children work in gardens at the schools to raise food. shari also reported that the community garden in huntington station is off to a good start. local residents have been given plots on town-owned land near the big h shopping center to raise vegetables. the family service league is involved, and friends donated $1,000 several months ago to buy tools and other materials to get the gardens started. *** You can unsubscribe from this list by sending an email to fsf60k-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the subject field.
