Members of the Murray Parents' Association said Thank You Wednesday while Murray Center Employees entered work.
Murray Parents Association Shows Thanks to Murray Employees
Murray Parents' member Judy Groner says they were outside at 5 a.m. Wednesday when third shift was leaving and first shift was coming in. She says the idea was from a combination of people and says it was the only way to thank everyone in person. She says the employees have been very appreciative of their gesture.
"What's funny is all the employees that have turned it around on us and we're trying to thank them. We've had at least three-containers of coffee from the cottages or McDonald's, home baked goods given to us and sausage biscuits, they went out and gave them to us. Here we are trying to do for them and they always come through for us. We've had people get out of the cars, just about in tears giving us a hug, and it's been nice", said Groner.
Groner says as far as what the Murray Parents' Association is doing in regards to preventing the closure, the legal team is working a lot behind the scenes, but no other details are being released at this time.
