Piper is 13-years-old. When she was 8, she began collecting cans and taking them back for money. She then would take that money and buy bikes for kids who weren't able to have one. Piper has been doing this for five years now, and she is about 15 bikes away from being able to donate her 1000th bike! If interested in donating to the cause you can VENMO a donation to @pipersproject. You will see the name George on that account because Piper is too young to have a Venmo account, so her father is the name on it. Thanks to everyone who helps to make a donation to get Piper to donated bike number 1,000!

Keep Halloween On October 31st, Or Move It?
October 27th, 2023 12:15pm
There has been quite the debate over the last few years. Halloween has been celebrated on October 31st for a very long time. However, some parents feel that it should be changed. Rather than have Halloween on a week night, change it to the last Saturday of October so it's consistent each year. This way kids can go out, have fun, eat candy, and not have to try and wake up for school the next morning. What do you think? Keep it October 31st? Or move it to the last Saturday of October?
