After raising funds to purchase new items for the "Mr. Pulaski House" Phyllis asked if Mt Pulaski Grade School students would do the actual shopping. The MPGS 8th Grade Student Council took on the project. Armed with lists of items to be purchased, the students arrived at Johnson's Food Center and the Dollar Gen- eral Store. Both stores added to the donations already made by the community. lOAm to 4Pm Tues. - Sun. 104 Governor Oglesby s, 947-2100 At Horsefeathers in Elkhart DeliciousHomeCookingatitBest! @t, Offering scrumptious Lunches .....................................
