Village Players donate Buddy Benches
All three elementary schools now have Buddy Benches thanks to recent donations by the Village Players of Middleville to Page and McFall schools. Lee received their bench more than a year ago and principal Angela Jefferson said it's working well. The idea is simple. If a child is feeling lonely or doesn't have anyone to play with, they can find a seat on the Buddy Bench. Other students will see them there and know they are looking for a friend. Mike Bremer and Doug Brinks, both members of the Village Players, presented a skit to students to demonstrate how the Buddy Benches work. "When you see someone on the Buddy Bench, open up your heart and be a friend," said Bremer.
A big thank you to the Village Players for donating the benches to Page and McFall.
