East Express | June 20, 2019
Last month, I asked the children of East Grand Rapids to send me a letter describing what they think the kids of EGR can do to help improve our City. I would like to thank all those who took the time to share their creative ideas and drawings.
After much consideration of all the entries, Max Chamberlain's community garden idea won me over. Although the community garden idea has been debated amongst the adults in our community, I was happy to see that even our youngest members are intrigued by working together and cultivating fresh fruits and vegetables with their hands. Because of his thoughtful note, Max will walk with me in the 4th of July parade in two weeks. Congratulations, Max!
