Theta Kappa Members Host Day Out for HomeFront Children

that PTK members had specially made for them. The children got to pick
out the piece of pottery that they wanted to paint. According to PTK Advisor
Michael Dalton, all of the children did a wonderful job. "They were
constantly asking for feedback, 'Do you like how mine looks?,' 'Does mine
look OK?.' 'Does this color look right?' The children gave everyone hugs
and thanks before they left," Dalton reported.
in the event were MCCC students Samantha Kenyon, Ashley Rose, and PTK
