Kids at Empire Community School are well on their way to getting a playground.
The Friendly City Optimist Club recently presented Empire School with a $6,000-donation. This added to the $4,000 that Empire School students raised since fall. Friday morning, in recognition of the donation, the school put on a pancake breakfast with the help of RBC.
