In spite of the bitter cold, Auburn kids took advantage of a couple of extra vacation days courtesy of Mother Nature.

At Pakachoag Church, the church and the Friends of Pappas Recreation Complex offered a place to warm up, hot cocoa, cookies, and movies.  Partly, it was a way to have fun and give parents something to do on this unexpected day off, according to Friends committee member Jen LaBonte.  “We also put out donation cans to raise some money for the playground project” she said.  “We raised a little over $100.”  Not bad for an impromptu afternoon!
