Lincoln Elementary School 2nd graders and residents at Bethany Home in Alexandria shared a special lunch Monday to celebrate a year of new friendships.


The lunch was a "grand finale" to a year-long project that involved the students making monthly visits with the residents.

The idea bloomed from a chance meeting between Rebecca Evich, a 2nd grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary School in Alexandria, and Emil Schultz, a resident at Bethany Home in Alexandria.
