Eh? received an interesting request recently. It seems that a fourth-grader in Evansville, Ind., is doing a report about Minnesota and is asking for help from the subject of her report: Minnesotans.
Sabina Alcock is asking Minnesotans to send her brochures, postcards or anything else that might help a fourth-grader write a report on what life is like in the state.
Those interested in helping a faraway kid with her homework should send Minnesota-related materials to Evansville Day School, c/o Sabina Alcock, 3400 N. Green River Road, Evansville, IN 47715.
