In the spirit of Thanksgiving and showing appreciation and “thanks,” Westview Elementary School, 155 Moore Road, Avon Lake, is hosting a Service Breakfast to “thank” those who serve our community for all they do. Dozens of Avon Lake police, fire and EMS personnel have been invited to attend the breakfast, Tuesday, Nov. 24 from 7:45 to 8:45 a.m. at the school.
To fund a portion of the breakfast, Westview Student Council held a “Penny Wars” competition last month. Each class (grades K-4) competed by adding pennies and bills to glass jugs at the school. The response was overwhelming and the school raised more than $1,700 in one week.
Student Council members will help prepare and serve the breakfast, serving pancakes, sausage, juice and fruit. The entire student body will be making cards, decorations, etc. for the breakfast. Remaining money will go toward a Buddy Bench program at Westview.
