On Monday, April 27, 2009, Norman A. Bleshman Regional Day School, a school that serves severely, multiply-disabled students held a Roll-A-Thon to raise money for Holiday Express and Special Olympics. Students were treated to a lap or two around the parking lot
on some fancy bikes, tried their skills at the basketball hoops; and even planted marigolds and tomato plants in recognition of Earth Day. All this took place under beautiful sunny skies with rock ‘n roll music adding to the festive mood of the day. Pictured is student David, filling the pot with fresh soil and plants as
Don Pignataro, Executive Director, accepts

Thank you to Angela Cupo, Principal, and Jenifer Spear, Vice Principal, and all their staff for a terrific day – and to all those who contributed to the very generous donation of $1,000 we received from our friends at Norman A. Bleshman.
