Mrs. Barton’s fourth-grade class from Meadow Ridge Elementary took time during their Valentine’s party to decorate sugar cookies for families in need of a little “heart.” The residents of Vern Barry Place in downtown Grand Rapids enjoyed being served a spaghetti lunch followed by the beautifully decorated heart-shaped sugar cookies. In the economic times we are facing, the kids felt good about doing something for families to brighten their Valentine celebration.
