Ms. Alford, played by Mary Alford, third grade teacher, agrees to sponsor Harry on the trip of his dreams, provided Hogansville Elementary students read, read, read. Students in grades kindergarten, one and two may count books that have bee read to them by their teachers, parentS, friends or even siblings.

They started out as drawings, then as i could read she wrote small notes, t began to write back when I hit the pre-teens. I would complain that my mother didn't understand and my father was too old fashioned. She always had words of wisdom to help smooth the troubles• She was the most faithful friend I will ever have - loyaU[, encouraging, humorous, and smarter than anyone I know. I still pass by the old house where my parents used to live. The mailbox still stands. Sometimes t catch myself wanting to check for a letter from my grandmother especially when I need her wisdom, but it has been years since I have been able to read a note from my best friend. If she were here today, she might like to know that my mother keeps regular contact by mail with my daughter even though they live only two blocks down the road. My mother is just as wise and patient.
