COMMUNITY SEEKS HELP TO SEND LEMON GROVE STUDENTS TO WASHINGTON D.C.

October 29, 2011 (Lemon Grove) -- “Please help us send 8th grade students at Palm Middle School, Lemon Grove, to Washington, DC in March, 2012,” says Helen Ofield, president of the Lemon Grove Historical Society. “The trip--a first for most of the students--will cap two years of history courses in U.S. and world history and give them that in-person experience with the institutions and people who represent our government in action.  These 13 and 14-year-olds will greatly benefit from seeing our nation's capital just as they are preparing to move on to high school.”
