learn math, science, and traditions while having fun. Every student received a take-home bag that contained all the items needed to show what they learned. The kits included both King Arthur All-Purpose Flour and King Arthur 100% Organic White Whole Wheat Flour to bake healthy breads at home. Good Friday morning saw 79 loaves of bread in many different shapes, colors, and
designs being returned to the school. At 10 a.m., Father Gary Belliveau, Pastor of St. Kathryn Parish, blessed the loaves and spoke with the students about how important it is to feed those in need, and how wonderful this project was at Easter. Following a blessing, the loaves were donated to the Anne Marie House on the PMA grounds and to the Nashua Soup Kitchen.

The donations of supplies ran the complete length of the first graders’ classroom, as it was stacked on the desks, ready for boxing and shipping. Paris’ dad, Specialist Christopher Prunier, has been assigned to the 1st Engineer Battalion, 111th Sapper Company. He, along with his battalion, is responsible for the dismantling of the Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), which have been set by the enemy to kill Americans. Each day, Paris’ dad ventures out in search of the IEDs and deactivates the bombs before they detonate on any American soldiers. He and his battalion enter into enemy territory, and create safe roadways for fellow soldiers to follow.
But today was a day for the celebration of a hero at Griffin Memorial School. The first-grade children got to touch, hug, and read words that they had written to Specialist Prunier, which expressed their

love and deepest respect. Griffin Memorial School Principal Bo
Schleicher presented Specialist Prunier with a school sweatshirt, stating, “This young man was a student of mine when I was an Assistant Principal and he was in the 8th grade. He is a remarkable young man who had provided these young kids a great role model. Thank you.” The Litchfield Lions Club, during the
packing, wrapping, and shipping of the boxes to Specialist Prunier’s team in Iraq, supported Mrs. Johnstone’s endeavor by offering to pay the $300 in shipping fees. At the welcome home ceremony, the Litchfield Lions Club offered Mrs. Johnstone a Certificate of Appreciation for her efforts and her leadership.
“No one talks about heroes,” commented
Mrs. Johnstone. “We have a real hero living in our town, and he should be celebrated for all he does for his
family, his town, and our country.” When Specialist Prunier’s short, 15-
day leave has been completed, he will be returning to Iraq. He and his fellow soldiers will remain behind, when his brethren are sent home on or around July 1. “Our job will continue after the troops
have gone home. While we turn over the responsibility of safety and security to the Iraq people on or about September 1, 2010, our team of engineers will remain until December. Our job has been to teach them how to stand on their own.” As the children sang “God Bless America” to Specialist Prunier, all eyes within the cafeteria of Griffin Memorial School filled with that sense of pride that could only be offered by one of America’s finest—the American soldier.
