Donations Fill Hearts at SLE Christmas Store
SEELEY LAKE – While children love to receive gifts on Christmas, the ability to give gifts to those they love brings additional joy to the season. For the past 20 years, Seeley Lake Elementary junior high teacher Patti Bartlett has organized the SLE Christmas Store. One student said it made him feel like Santa because he has gifts to put under the tree.
Bartlett said when she was in junior high her school had a Christmas Store. Her younger brother brought home a "dorky gift" he had purchased for their dad.
"His face just glowed when he gave it and it was so cool for him," said Bartlett. "...
