New York Mills third grade students experienced a horse-drawn wagon ride yesterday afternoon. The three classes each took a turn on Lester Bain’s wagon, which was pulled by two horses named Calamity and Jane. The event was sponsored by Farmers & Merchants State Bank, a NY Mills business that “adopted” the third grade class as part of the school’s Adopt-A-Class program. Though the wind bit at the nose, the children were full of laughs as they sang carols and played trivia games. Each child even received his or her very own elf name—Bubbles Floppy-Feet and Perky Pickle-Pants anyone?
