To wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving at Larned High School, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes invited both staff and students to enjoy a hot breakfast in the LHS gym on Friday, Nov. 19. Approximately 75 to 100 students and staff enjoyed scrambled eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy, and orange juice, which were provided and served by members of the Ministerial Association of Pawnee County. A big thank-you goes out to those pastors who got up early to prepare and to serve this meal.

The Larned Chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes will also be holding a "Bundles for Babies" drive Dec. 6-13. Working with the Pawnee County Health Department, as well as the Parents as Teachers Program, the FCA students will be collecting items that are needed by newborn babies through three years of age. If you are interested in helping the FCA kids out with this project, you may drop the items at LHS or with an FCA representative during the early-season Gene Keady Basketball Tournament, which will be held at the Larned Middle School during the above dates.

These items will then be distributed to children in need in Pawnee County. If you have questions, please contact Janet Fleske at Larned High School. The members of Fellowship of Christian Athletes would like to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Items needed for "Bundles for Babies": Outlet plug covers, baby bath items, hats, gloves (winter weather items), water temperature ducks, baby nail care kits, baby shoes, bottles, socks, diaper care ointment (Balmex, etc.), diapers, gently used clothing, brushes, baby wipes, baby towels, diaper bags, baby blankets, board books, toys. Any items, actually, would be very welcome, Mrs. Fleske said.
