I remember when Lora ad her sister(s) raised money by selling aluminum cans. They purchased the park bench that sat at the front entrance of the new Allendale School.

Lora was such a wonderful and caring lady. She always supported activities at the Allendale School, and cared so much for the children and everyone else. Another angel got her wings.......She will be missed.
