Community Dinner Was a Success!

Many years ago there was a television show called the A-Team. After a successful operation, the leader of the group would say "I love it when a plan comes together".  Last night the Xenia Community School District held its first ever communitywide event- a spaghetti dinner.  This definitely would not have been possible had everyone not pitched in and worked together.  It was a terrific event.
