I remember these, these used to come to my elementary school years ago. It’s really great that you’re doing this mayor, but only a ten year anniversary–catch-up needs to be done somewhere.

Good stuff, hygiene is very important.

“UNDER SERVED”. What does that mean? Is that a new buzz word for welfare recipients?
