Hubbard School students 'hug' their neighbors


Hubbard School students delivered fall flowers to neighbors.
 
A Plainfield Today reader who lives on Stelle Avenue reported an interesting story.

One recent morning, she thought she heard noises on her front porch. By the time she got to the door and opened it, she saw a group of boys pulling a utility cart heading down the street.

At her feet was a beautifully wrapped pot of fall-blooming chrysanthemums. Tucked into the flowers was a handmade label saying simply 'Hubbard School students respect their neighbors'.

The students evidently blanketed all the homes between Plainfield and Grant Avenues on both Stelle Avenue and West 8th Street, the school's 'neighbors'.

Nice touch, Hubbard students!
