#2 Veneta
January 12, 2015 by Carrie Peterson

This week the Tooth Taxi returned to Veneta Elementary. They were met with a lot of green and yellow as the school was celebrating Oregon Duck Day. It was fun to see the kids supporting their home team.
This school has been a great site partner for us. There is tremendous need for dental treatment here and we've made several visits attempting to complete treatment. The staff and parent volunteers have always welcomed us with open arms, going out of their way to stop by and show their appreciation. This trip was no exception; our staff was spoiled with daily goodies, including muffins, a vegetable tray and homemade chicken chili for lunch!

They also had the opportunity to have dinner with Holly Spruance from OEA Choice Trust. Getting to sit down and catch up with her is always a special treat.

We look forward to a return visit to this school next month.
