Henry              It's good to see that Operation Happiness is still continuing in Franklin County , and the process seems to be so much more improved over the 90's. Warren Hamm and Edna Chagnon deserve a ton of credit for keeping it going, rallying the communities and getting the word out to those who needed assistance. I wonder if the NHS at BFA/Fairfax is still helping out as they did years ago when Angela Senesac Baker was in school.

Mr. Brown -
I'm paying it forward for you!  As a board member of the Franklin/Grand Isle United Way, I'm still WAY involved with Operation Happiness.  We are doing a huge food drive at the beginning of December to collect food so we can hopefully provide more boxes during the upcoming Holiday season.   I'm grooming Gracie at the moment to continue the legacy.  Thanks for your quiet and incredibly respectful leadership in pointing me in this direction! Hope all is well!

Good Morning        Thanks for the gracious compliment, Angela, but leadership can only provide a push...the real keys are the people who reach out and perform the work necessary to accomplish the tasks which, in turn, help to serve others. In this case, you and your classmates, and subsequent years of numerous BFA NHS students who followed through the years ( all of whom showed up in that chilly Armory in the the days before the actual event ) to both separate & organize the food and baskets for the project's organizers.  Warren Hamm could never get over how much energy all of you brought to the cause, the only school at that time to do so. 
I find it gratifying that you have continued to serve your Franklin County Community in several capacities, and I also greatly enjoy the contributions to this website, and to other groups around the area( i.e.,churches, agencies, fire departments,rescue squads, school boards and the like ) by former students and their parents who have not forgotten the purpose and motto of our BFA, spending time serving their community for the greater good.     It means a lot to see and hear about the tradition continuing.       By the way, Mike, are you still foolishly cheering for the Bruins Huh      Dick Brown
