Lakeside Levy Elementary School
Merrick, NY
April 7, 2008

We kicked off our school programs with a return to Merrick's Lakeside Levy Elementary School after a three-year absence. It was a cold gray April morning and that made for many eager volunteers willing to don the woolens for the Lincoln Fashion Show. We also had an unusual spectator... the local press. Reporter Scott Brinton asked some questions and snapped some pictures for an article published in the Merrick Herald (April 10-16, 2008)
