To the Editor:
The River Valley Recreation Center held bake sales at their games recently to benefit the family of five-year-old Nathaniel Gallant of Mexico, who was recently diagnosed with a form of childhood leukemia.
Nate is an honorary member of the Franklin Savings Bank team; his father Kevin coaches for the River Valley Painting Team, on which his daughter Gabrielle plays.
The bake sales were staffed by volunteers, both adult as well as many members of the girls' basketball league. Maura Kent and Katrina Roy, parents of players, donated Sunday River lift tickets and an Avon basket full of goodies as raffle items.
The Rec Center wishes to thank all who donated, the support was amazing!
