After school on Oct. 12, the Ashley Falls’ Kid Power group gathered to make welcome bags and activity books for children at the Ronald McDonald House. As the house serves families with seriously ill children being treated at the hospital, Ashley Falls students wanted to make sure they felt welcome when they arrived with bags they decorated themselves, stuffed with items such as shampoo, conditioner, snacks, toothpaste and dental floss (the dental items donated by Moser Orthodontics). Each bag came with a note written by the children. Students also put together activity books filled with puzzles and games. Photos: Karen Billing
