            Three weeks ago we held our annual Marcy Fall Fun Fest. It was a huge success!
             I would like to give a heart felt thanks to all the volunteers who helped make Fall Fun Fest possible this
    year. Specifically, I’d like to give thanks to the outstanding committee that worked tremendously hard on Fall
    Fun Fest 2009. And I’d also like to thank Donna, Sidney, all the Marcy teachers and staff, and the engineers for
    their wonderful support before, during and after Fall Fun. There where several people who helped wrap baskets
    on Thursday after school and who helped with set up on Friday after school, and many more who stayed after Fall
    Fun was over to help clean up – thank you to these people. Many people donated cakes to the cake walk, and many
    others donated items for their room’s raffle baskets – thank you to these people too.
            Fall Fun was so successful due to the efforts of so many of you. Below is a list of the names that I have
    on record, but there are more of you. So – I thank you one and all!
