With just three days to go, students, parents and teachers at Batavia’s Robert Morris Elementary are hoping the community can rally behind them just a little bit more, as they compete for a 50-thousand dollar grant, and a new playground.
3rd-grade teacher Jerry Sloan appearing on our Main and Center program yesterday, said Robert Morris is in 14th-place in the Pepsi Refresh grant competition. They need to be in 10th-place by Friday to win the money.

Another Christmas Day, another dinner served, and a record-breaking year for T.F. Browns and the Batavia Lions Club.
Both restaurant and club teamed up for their 22nd annual holiday dinner for those less fortunate, and together they served over 320 people. It was so many, a third seating time had to be added to accommodate everyone. There were originally only two seating times.
Over 140 toys were handed out to children at the dinner as well, courtesy of the Lions Club. In addition, all the Lions in attendance helped out, serving as waiters and busboys and dishwashers.
