May 17th Clean-up Day with PNC Growing Up Great Volunteers and Others

Woodlawn Preschool and 10 PNC Growing Up Great Program volunteers spent an afternoom volunteering cleaning up the yard at the Territorial site,



Great Fun and Learning Experience with Firehouse 4 and Springfield Fire Dept.

Our children learned what all it takes to be a fireman or woman. They learned that although a fireman looks different with all their gear on they really are not scary at all. They are there to help them and they need to call out for help.

Thank you to both of these departments for showing these children skills that may save their life someday.
