This year we raised $492 from our donation boxes, which we are proud to donate again to their Garden Project. We want people to know what an innovative and far-reaching program, Oceana High School has.”.

Facebook was the arena where he expressed incredulity that any young family would opt to buy their first estate in some Middle American wasteland (“top locations are among the least desirable areas I’d ever consider living.
