“We purchased glasses for children and adults in the Edison School District, collected more than 200 pairs of glasses, gave two Edison High School scholarships, participated in Quaker Day and Festival in the Woods, presented checks to the District 13-G Parade of Checks and sponsored a golf scramble at Spring Hills Golf Course.”
