Thanks to a recent grant provided by Friendly’s Ice Cream of Brunswick, students at Lisbon Community School will have a literacy collection of books making connections in the library with the Every Day Math program.  “Education is the key to success.  We are willing to assist Lisbon Schools and their students on numerous projects,” shared Christine McLain, General Manager of Friendly’s in Brunswick.  McLain and High 5 Ambassador, Stefanie Decker, presented the grant check to building Principal, Carlene Iverson and Assistant Principal, Ryan Patrie.  Top student readers were also in attendance with District Librarian, Katy Dodge, Library Assistant, Victoria Worden, Grant Writer, Monica Millhime, and school committee member, Kathi Yergin.  “It was refreshing to hear the commitments from Ms. McLain as a new partner in education for the Lisbon School Department,” comments Yergin.  “Friendly’s offers programs supporting Anti-Bullying campaigns and others family-oriented nights for student recognitions.  In these economic times it’s wonderful to have the support from businesses who are still willing to dedicate their resources to education for the benefit of our students.”  Pictured (l-r) front row: Cameron Goslin, Kayla Melanson, Kiley Merritt; second row: Ethan Braley, Zach Maney, Hunter Davis, Sarah Crosby, Brooke Cossar, Levi Levesque, Jordyn Maloy;  third row:  Noah Chaisson, Cameron Bourget, Daniel Bolton, Willow Young, Christopher Howard, Kyleigh Dunigan;  fourth row:  Cameron Phelps, Nicholas Welsh, Alan Lavoie, Gregory Simpson, Dawson Martel, Michael Farrington, Eli Meagher-Touchette,  Victoria Worden; back row: Ryan Patrie, Katy Dodge, Carlene Iverson, Christine McLain and Stefanie Decker.  Photo by Monica Millhime.
