In November, members of the SPARC/Interact Club created
Holiday Gift Packs containing items that included pens, crossword puzzle
books, combs, socks, personal care items and student-created holiday
cards to the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Northport. One of the
recipients of the package, U.S. Marine Corporal John Fretz, spoke to the
students about his experiences serving in Afghanistan. Students learned
about the importance of honoring the nation’s heroes and giving back to
those who sacrifice so much.
