Happy Mother's day

Happy Mother's Day! I hope the mother out there had an amazing day and celebrated with their families.

Junior Achievement Trivia Night

Wilder Staff and families particiated in the Junior Achievement Trivia Night Friday night. For the last 2 years, we have either won the Trivia or Table decorating...or one year...both. It was an 80s theme and this year we did not win the Table decorating, but we won the Trivia. It heals immensely many of us (present company included) were around in the 80s.

We had an 80s Prom Table...if you couldn't tell.
