Library Sends Students Back to School in Style
Above: Flood Middle School 7th-grader Chris Palumberi (far right) shares a limo ride with friends Christopher Root (left) and Brenden Castro. Palumberi won the back-to-school ride from a Summer Reading drawing at the Stratford (Conn.) Library Teen Department, which he became eligible for after reading at least four books over the summer. The limo was provided gratis by Jeff Donaldson, owner of Absolute Limousine Service in Milford. The other limo ride, designated for a high-school student, went to Stratford High School junior Yasmine Mahmud, who found her school principal, Margaret Lasek, awaiting her arrival curbside.
