Watson Visits Detroit, MI
Hello from Allen Academy! I had so much fun with all of my friends at this school in Detroit! It was great to meet all twenty-four of the students. We did so many great things that I want to tell you about.
The first thing we did was help pack boxes of food for needy families. Each of the families went home with a turkey, macaroni and cheese, potatoes, and more. I had such a great time helping the sixth grade NEHS members pack the boxes. Even though I have small bear paws, I was still able to help out a lot. It felt great to know that we were helping families have a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.

The next thing we did was help serve Thanksgiving dinner to our fifth and sixth grade students and their family members. Each of the families received a plate of delicious turkey, stuffing, corn, and mashed potatoes with a yummy piece of pumpkin pie to top it off. I also enjoyed helping my Allen friends pour drinks at the event. At the end of the night I even had a chance to sit down and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal with the fifth and sixth grade NEHS members.
Although my time in Detroit flew by, I made memories with my new friends that will last a lifetime. I can’t wait to come back and visit again.
PS: Happy holidays to my friends in Detroit. I miss you already!
