Every pet adopted out from LRHS is fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered and healthy. We need the LRHS, and they need us, which is why we are gathering supplies, food, and other items on their wish list.

Dear Mr. Ives and the Awesome Folks at Subaru,

    I really appreciate the fact that you chose to adopt my classroom.  The students were deeply touched by the fact that people, whom they had never met, cared enough to give so much.  I watched the enthusiasm build in them as they continued to search through and find all sorts of useful, practical, and welcome school supplies.  I think your staff and customers are wonderful and amazingly thoughtful.  You gave far more than we expected and are truly a generous and considerate group.  Just saying thank you will never repay your kindness, but thank you anyway.
    I have loved this quote since I first read it.  Your group personified this for us, and so I offer it to you as a thought for your dealership.

"Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
In all the times you can,
To all the people you can."


Sincerely,
Barbara Blinn
Winnisquam Regional High School
