Pictured, left to right, with only a small portion of the items collected, is VFW 2480 Commander Richard Ellis, Lester Short, Don Poppe and Geoff Halsey, Bataan Memorial Intermediate Principal.
Students at Bataan Memorial Intermediate recently held a food drive in conjunction with the local VFW 2480. Mr. Geoff Halsey, Principal, challenged students in grades 3, 4 and 5 to a contest to see who could bring in the most food. The response was overwhelming and students brought in many items that were presented at Bataan Day on Nov. 8. Grade 4 at Bataan Intermediate won the food drive challenge, but the real winners are the veterans. All the food items will go to local veterans in need this holiday season.
