Week in Great Falls


Kindergartners at Laura Hummel and Lauren Ambrosini’s class at the Great Falls Elementary had their class pageant last week. They made their own costumes (wearable art) and they made the Mayflower on the wall behind them. They dressed as native Americans, pilgrims and turkeys. In a group photo, above, first row, are Sarah Cuddihy, Francesca Mitchell and Isabel Woolston; second row, Billy James, Tyler Morgan, Max Rock and Jack Kelly. Pictured below is Max Rock with his mother Susan. He made the pilgrim hat and shirt front.

<b>Molly the Pony Comes to Great Falls</b>

Molly the Pony is coming to visit Lift Me Up! therapeutic riding program in Great Falls. Molly’s inspirational tale of survival and determination to make it through Hurricane Katrina can be found on the Internet. Molly’s days are filled with visits and “speaking engagements,” as her ability to overcome adversity and adapt to her prosthetic leg allow her to share hope and encouragement to others.

Join Lift Me Up! in welcoming Molly at a reception on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 4 p.m. at the Lift Me Up! facility at 9700 Georgetown Pike in Great Falls. The “Meet Molly the Pony” reception is open to the public.

Molly will be boarding at the facility prior to the event but due to her special needs and other commitments, refrain from attempting to visit Molly before the reception.
