A construction-paper chain designed by the preschoolers at the Falls Church-McLean Children’s Center served as the ribbon at the official ribbon cutting on Thursday, Feb. 9 of the school’s new activity bus. The Center’s children, ages 2-5, regaled donors to the nonprofit school’s bus campaign with their rendition of "Wheels on the Bus" in thanks for their contributions. The celebration was attended by representatives from donating organizations, the McLean Community Foundation, McLean Rotary Club, Immanuel Presbyterian Church of McLean, the PNC Grow Up Great program, Home Veterinary Care of Northern Virginia and many individual donors. Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust also attended.
