President's Day responses sought

February 20, 2012

Parents of school-age children or students...

We're doing a little President's Day special in tomorrow's paper.
Ask your child (or yourself, student), "If I were President, what would I do?"

I'd also like to run an adult survey: "Who was your favorite President; why?"

Answers will be published in the Pilot News Tuesday!

Email answers to Lydia Beers at lbeers@thepilotnews.com
or Maggie Nixon at mnixon@thepilotnews.com

Please attach a photo of the respondent, as well.
