On Thursday October 5, a check for $1,000 was presented to Perdido Elementary / Middle School to be used through the school library for promoting a love of reading among all Perdido School students. This is the second consecutive year for such a generous gift from Guy’s Chapel United Methodist Church. Children made contributions all week long during the 2017 VBS event for this service of love and concern for their peers.
