JOANN GIVES KIDS A CHOICE AT ARBORETUM
I really enjoyed my visit to Arboretum Elementary. The students were attentive, enthusiastic, and well prepared. They asked thoughtful questions and provided imaginative responses. I'm so happy that the Wisconsin Humane Society will benefit from my visit, too!
