Radio M*A*S*H - Day Two

Today, orders were filled for about 900 children. The total count has increased slightly. There was a minor disaster overnight when the automatic sprinklers for the landscaping went off. A fair number of toys got soaked. Some were salvaged and others had to be thrown away. The National Guard soldiers brought towels and fans to dry things out.

An old man hand made these little rocking horses. Legacy EMS bought his entire stock.

Teachers from Johnson Elementary sorting and straightening things out. They also filled some orders, including their own school.
