Quote of the day: “H-E-double-hockey-sticks YEAH I’m excited.”–Wayne Central student, on his reaction to Darius’s visit.
From Syracuse, the gang headed west to Ontario Center, NY.
First up was a cookout with host Nicole Favreau and some members of the Wayne Central School District. It was a fun chance to get to know some of the students, families, and teachers.
The cookout took place in a park on Lake Ontario. Check out the guys swing!
The next day we went to the high school, where students greeted D.
Nicole presented Darius to the students…
and Barbara presented Nicole with a coveted 13th Crew member Shirt! These are very special, reserved for friends of the cause who go above and beyond. Nicole fits that description to a tee.
The students did a great job fundraising, and their enthusiasm for D’s visit was infectious. Go Eagles!
And after a raucous concert from D and Dirt…
students stood in line for a chance to meet Darius and get a picture.
Thank you, Wayne!
