$50,000 is a GRAND sum to be used to support excellence in education. Are there any special areas that are funded? e.g. computers for junior and high schools, or interactive boards in elementary grades, music supplies, school libraries if they still exist?? Just interested in knowing! ;o)

Great Job! A lot of fun for a good cause. The FEE committee really out did themselves this year!

Hey Pat. This should give you an idea about the kind of stuff that FEEE is up to. Technology has definitely been a focus, but nothing is off the table. Take a look at the video attached, as well. It provides a good description of what FEEE is all about. http://easton-ma.patch.com/articles/feee-looks-to-rise-to-new-heights

Thanks for the info, Patrick. Looks as if FEEE organizers/members/promoters are really getting citizens behind them for some needed resources for kids and teachers. AND, they're using some terrific sounding, fun events to fund their cause. Bravo!
