Every year for the last three years, I have gone to the East Elementary Holiday Shoppe at East Elementary in Athens, Ohio. The Holiday Shoppe gives children the chance to buy gifts for their friends and family from local artists and craftspeople. It also offers them lessons in counting, spending, and budgeting their money. The Holiday Shoppe is great fun and very rewarding. This year's East Elementary Holiday Shoppe will take place on Friday, December 12, at East Elementary School, 3 Wallace Drive, Athens, OH 45701. I hope to see you there.
