Good Morning

Our “24 Days of Giving Thanks” series features our very own Ann Duplessis. Leading up to Thanksgiving, AFC is sharing school choice success stories from across the country and what we are thankful for this year – school choice and the people who are helping children attend a great school across the country.

What an epic night of baseball. Cubs Win!

Enjoy your day! – Paul
