Lincoln Theater owner, staff and Washington-Monroe PTO praised

Send a link to a friend 

To the editor:

This letter is a little late, but I feel that David Lanterman deserves public recognition for the Christmas present he presented to the students of Washington-Monroe Elementary School. Mr. Lanterman worked with the PTO of W-M to make it financially feasible, gave a great price for both the movie and snacks, enabling the PTO to send the entire student body to see "Chipwrecked" at the Lincoln Theater. The theater opened early and even allowed the children to see the movie before anyone else did.

[to top of second column in this letter]

All of the Lincoln Theater employees helped to set up popcorn and pop and made it a wonderful experience for the students.

Mr. Lanterman and his people deserve a huge thank you, as does the Washington-Monroe Parent Teacher Organization.
