    Teacher Appreciation Breakfast

    Every year we turn one of our breakfasts into an amazing Teacher's Appreciation event. We recognize the five local Arlington schools, their Principals and their Teachers of the Year. We present to them school supplies and paper that we have collected over the past year and a special gift basket from our Arlington Council members.
