In light of a recent local tragedy

In case you live in Erie (I'm sorry, I'm stuck here too for a while!) you PROBABLY heard about the horrific accident involving a little girl waiting for her bus. If not, you can read about it here

One advantage about living in a sort of small town is the ability of people to rally in times such as these. So if you want to help, here are some ways:

- if you go to any Northwest Savings Bank (maybe visit their site? not sure, I never had an account with them) you can make a donation to her family. Cards and gifts can be sent to her family....check it out here.

- also, there's some kind of fundraiser at the Metropolitian Dance Club on Jan. 7. Of course, that is also covered in the article.

So if you can, please do so.
