Amazing Progress at our Third Ribbon Making Session

Hey everyone! Today we had our third ribbon making session and had an amazing turnout of over 30 kids! In just 7 hours we made over 3,600 ribbons. That's as much as our first two sessions combined! And the Sun Sailer Newspaper was there taking pictures! Thanks to everyone who helped. You were awesome!
