WEST ORANGE, NJ - The Junior Interact Club at Roosevelt Middle School and the Helping Hands Service Club of Liberty Middle School visited several elementary schools to distribute toys and bring holiday cheer. Students in both schools raised the funds to purchase the gifts for the younger students. 

On Dec. 18, the Helping Hands Service Club of Liberty Middle School visited Washington Elementary School to entertain Kindergarten students with a sing-along of holiday songs including "Frosty the Snowman" and "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer."

Vito Panteleo, Liberty's own “Mr. Fix It,” came dressed as Santa Claus. Kindergarten students rushed up to have a picture taken with him and ask for a special present. He and his Helping Hand Elves did not disappoint as every student received a gift: a doll for the girls and an action figure for the boys.

"During the months of November and December, students raised $1,000 to bring holiday cheer to our fellow students in West Orange," said Kim Cerruti, Jr. Interact advisor.

"It really was a wonderful morning," said Jane Horwitz, LMS Helping Hands advisor. "We can't wait to do it again next year."

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
