Thumbs up

To event chairman Derek Null and the more than 100 other Waynesboro (Pa.) Area Senior High School students and staff who took part in last Saturday’s dance-a-thon at the high school. The event raised more than $6,800 for The Four Diamonds Fund, which helps children with cancer and their families. This selfless act gives us faith in our young people.


Thumbs up
