NYA Reach Out Project

On October 19, students from North Yarmouth Academy came to L'Ecole Française du Maine to help us clear brush in the woods and on the playground. It was a wonderful effort, and the children pitched in to help the "big kids" from NYA during recess. They loaded the branches and sticks onto a tarp and into a truck, to be taken away. We are grateful to the hard-working high school students and the NYA French teacher, Irene Marchenay, who also helped with the project. It was cold and damp outside, so Emilia served a cup of hot chocolate and biscuits to warm them with a well-deserved treat!
