The PA will again host Mall Madness this year for the grammar school kids on Dec. 16. Mall Madness is a fun shopping experience for the students in grades K-6.

Items cost just $.25 and it is a great opportunity for the kids to surprise their loved ones. There will be a box in the front hallway for any donations of new or like new items for the children to purchase, as well as wrapping paper and bows. Also, there will be a sign up sheet on the bulletin board for any parents interested in coming in to help wrap gifts.
