Helping one of their own
The Norwood School PTA held its fifth annual walk-a-thon Friday with students circling the field behind the Norwood Branch of the Warwick Boys and Girls Clubs. With each lap, parents and other volunteers checked off a number pinned to the back of their shirts. Traditionally, the PTA splits the funds raised with 10 to 15 percent of the amount going to a local non-profit organization. This year, however, all the funds will go to the family of the late Robert McLaughlin, who died suddenly over April vacation.
