Ballston Spa: Wood Road Elementary Students Donate Thanksgiving Baskets

The annual Wood Road Elementary School Turkey Shoot was held recently for students and families. People played a variety of basketball contests and ended with a parent/staff “knockout.” Free ice cream cone coupons were provided by Stewart's Shops to the winners. The event was organized by physical education instructor Kevin Dayton and the Wood Road staff. They collected enough food to provide 14 families with a complete Thanksgiving dinner, including a turkey donated by Hannaford. More than 60 kids from grades K-5 and about 50 parents participated in this annual event.
